The BVR Legal and Court Case Yearbook 2015 is essential for business valuation professionals and attorneys to stay current on the most important legal issues confronting the profession. The Yearbook covers marital disputes, breach of contract actions, damages, dissenting shareholder disputes, estate and gift tax cases, federal taxation, intellectual property cases, bankruptcy litigation, and more. Readers gain insight into how debates over economic damages, goodwill, M&A-related appraisals, discounts, and Daubert challenges played out in court during the past year.

The Yearbook digests most critical court decisions and offers in-depth analysis of the approaches the parties and the courts took to arrive at the decisions. Over 75 articles take readers through some of the best (and worst) practices that attorneys and experts used in making their case in courts throughout the country. BVR's acclaimed legal analysts continuously track published (and even unpublished) decisions from all state and federal jurisdictions, including such influential courts as the Delaware Court of Chancery and the United States Tax Court.

In addition to the digests, the Yearbook contains a case summary table, as well as a listing by state/jurisdiction, court, and case name, followed by a short description of the key valuation issue of each case.
