Course overview

It is important to understand the obligations of an expert called upon to prepare a report for use in valuation disputes. It is also important to understand how an expert report should be constructed, what facts need to be included, how those facts should be analyzed, and how to present the conclusions drawn from the analysis of the factual information collected. The expert needs to understand how best to present the factual evidence and deal with both the strengths and weaknesses of his/her valuation and the valuation put forward by the other side. This web class will involve very experienced presenters who have been involved in the preparation of expert reports - both as an expert and as a legal adviser - who will share the benefit of their knowledge in a very practical way.
