Valuation for fair value can be challenging. Deficiencies in the valuation process can result in exposure to regulatory scrutiny from the SEC or PCAOB and may result in enforcement actions or costly litigation—and corresponding damages or financial penalties. Regulatory oversight can be compounded with pressure from auditors and, of course, the clients themselves. In situations such as these, you want to make sure you have a good lawyer on your side. Attorneys Peter Anderson and Yvonne Williams-Wass are here to provide an overview of the legal and regulatory challenges and changes facing fair value professionals. Mark Zyla of Acuitas brings the valuation perspective, and together they bring a complete picture of the assumptions processes and regulatory pressures along with the best strategies to employ on your next valuation.
