The Role of Market Approach In Determining Business Value for Divorce

A Seminar Series on Business Valuation for Family Law Attorneys

Friday, October 6 | 12:00 - 1:30 PM | Towson Tavern in Towson, MD

A closely-held business is often one of the largest assets involved in a divorce, and as such, a common ground for disputes between spouses. To ensure equitable distribution of assets for their clients, many attorneys rely on accredited valuation experts to perform business valuations.

However, despite their familiarity with business valuations, many divorce attorneys aren’t familiar with how the valuation process works, the key areas of dispute among competing experts and the impact various adjustments can have on a business’s value.

The first of our four-part, in-depth valuation series, this seminar focuses on the use of the market approach in business valuations.

If you’ve ever watched Shark Tank and an entrepreneur is trying to convince Mr. Wonderful that the business is worth three times revenue to substantiate their valuation, that’s an example of the market approach. But how can it be applied to privately-held companies, particularly in a divorce context?

Join CPA and valuation expert Richard Wolf, CPA/ABV, CFE, CVA, as he discusses:

  • The general theory behind the market approach

  • The various methods used in the market approach

  • How the market approach can help substantiate other valuation approaches

  • Key value drivers in the market approach

  • How to identify potential weaknesses in opposing expert reports

Bring your appetite! Lunch is on us.

The seminar is free, but registration is required.
