In nearly all business valuations, the appraisal report holds a special place: The only tangible product of a thorough, delicate, and nuanced process, it acts as a guide to the appraiser's work process, skill, and judgement. For the purposes of the financial expert witness, however, the report's function as evidence—and sometimes testimony—enhances this singular importance. On January 10, BVR welcomes experts Michael Crain and Jim Alerding for What Should I Say? Reports and Reporting Standards in Litigation, Part 6 of BVR's Online Symposium on Litigation & Economic Damages. Join Crain and Alerding as they discuss how professional standards, jurisdictional rules, and appraisal experience can dictate the appraisal report in litigation and what every appraiser should know when preparing a report for trial.
