His experience includes reviewing the work of other business valuation professionals and identifying competency issues. Mike will share some of the more interesting cases he has observed over the years. The discussion, which will be guided by Brian Faughnan, will also cover various ethical considerations for lawyers who are engaging business valuation experts on behalf of their clients, or advising clients through the process of hiring a valuation expert.
