You’ve heard the admonition at every conference: “you have to know the case law – any business appraiser who is not up on the legal decisions in BV is doing him or herself a disservice!”  BVR has just made it easier than ever for practitioners to gain an advantage when it comes to legal research.  The new and improved BVLaw is better than ever with advanced search functionality that allows subscribers to search BV-specific case law by judge name and SIC code, adding to the existing ability to search by keyword, case type, jurisdiction and date.  There are also over 200 of the most common search terms pre-defined for you in the new “Browse by Topic” section of the database.

BVLaw includes close to 3,000 full text federal and state court decisions involving business valuation as well as abstracts for all cases written by BVR’s team of legal editors. Unlike the big case law databases, each abstract focuses specifically on the business valuation issues presented before the court.  BVR’s legal team is adding new case law every day!  You can now also save the results of your searches using the “My Bookshelf” feature.

Subscriptions are just $329 per year and include unlimited searching and the biweekly BVLaw Alert.   Firm-wide site licenses are available and trial subscriptions can be arranged by special request.   For more information, contact Linda Mendenhall at 503-2191-7963 ext. 2.
