BVR Legal and Court Case Yearbook 2016
February 2016 PDF (262 pages)
Business Valuation Resources, LLC
The Yearbook analyzes the year’s most meaningful valuation-related issues in the major courts including 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 learn how debates over economic damages, goodwill, M&A-related appraisals, discounts, and Daubert challenges played out in court during the past year.
Highlights of the Yearbook include:
- Learn why the Ohio Court of Appeals is retreating from the Heller decision, which made news by prohibiting double dipping in divorce cases. Has the court changed its mind?
- Keep up with the always-watched Delaware Court of Chancery decisions. This year, the court decided in several instances that merger price was a more reliable indicator of value than standard valuation techniques. How will this affect the valuation profession?
- Find out which court is admitting an expert’s “improbable” conclusions that are “good enough” to warrant admission under Daubert
