The Business Valuation Case Law Yearbook, 2019 Edition is essential for business appraisers and attorneys who want to stay ahead of their peers on the most important legal issues brought up in business valuation-related cases. With in-depth analysis from BVR’s legal team, the lessons learned in this book help appraisers reach better and more defensible valuation conclusions. And, attorneys who retain appraisers as financial experts learn how their experts can help them win (or lose) in court. 

The Yearbook analyzes issues arising in the year’s most meaningful valuation or damages cases litigated in state or federal courts. The types of cases are marital disputes, breach of contract actions, dissenting shareholder disputes, federal taxation (including estate and gift tax cases), intellectual property cases, bankruptcy litigation, and more. All the cases featured in this book impart important lessons about applicable legal principles, approved and discredited valuation methodology, and the act (art) of presenting expert opinions. This must-have collection benefits both the generalist as well as the specialist.

This publication and many more are also available for download with a subscription to the Digital Library or BVResearch Pro.
