By: George Hawkins, ASA, CFA, and Michael Paschall, ASA, CFA, JD (both of Banister Financial, Inc.)
Banister Financial’s George Hawkins and Michael Paschall, two of the nation's leading business valuation experts, provide the practical insights, fundamental know-how and detail the complexities of business valuation, as well as how to employ valuation methodologies in real world assignments.
In addition to step-by-step guidance to help professionals at all levels of understanding, the Guide also provides attorneys who must deal with business valuation issues the information they need, whether the matter involves an estate, or cross-examining a business valuation expert in a divorce or dissenting shareholder case.
For those involved in divorce business valuation matters, the book also discusses the use of statistical techniques for dealing with the issue of "active" versus "passive" changes in business valuation during the marriage and the extent to which the change in value is a separate or marital property component. This has become a major topic in divorce cases.
The Business Valuation Guide is published by Wolters Kluwer, one of the world’s largest, oldest and most respected legal, tax and accounting publishers.
