Who should enroll Appraisers who are considering expanding their practices into the area of litigation support, as well as those valuation experts who are already working in litigation.
Description This seminar is intended for appraisers who are considering expanding their practices into the area of litigation support, as well as those valuation experts who are already working in litigation. Many who work in a particular intended use fall into the habit of doing the same kind of work over and over without reconsidering how their skills are being communicated. The biggest difference between litigation support and other intended uses of our reports is how we deliver the message, both in our written reports and in the presentation of oral testimony which, of course, is specific to litigation assignments. However, there are also differences in how opinions might be better developed for use in litigation, and we will consider those differences as well. The information presented in this seminar is equally applicable to appraisers serving as expert witnesses in arbitration matters, as well as those in arbitration matters and other administrative hearings such as tax appeals and zoning.
Objectives
  • Understand how litigation assignments are different from assignments for other intended uses.
  • Understand how appraisal experts add value to attorneys in litigation matters.
  • Know how to present your opinions in expert reports.
  • Know how to present your opinions in oral testimony.
  • Identify the lines between complying with valuation standards and appearing to not be independent.
  • Understand how to conduct your professional practice as an expert.
Prerequisites None.
