The Business Law Track 

Presented by the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section 

About the Program

Valuations lie at the heart of many disputes—the family business that makes up the bulk of an estate's or divorcing couple's assets, the respective shares in a company's buy-sell agreement, the value of a lost business or development in commercial litigation or bankruptcy. If the parties can settle on a value for those assets, the resolution of the rest of the dispute falls into place or, worst case, the litigation can focus on liability, making it less complicated. This session will explore how to reach that agreement.  

You Will Learn

  • How to work through any mediation in reaching small agreements that have a large impact in resolving a dispute
  • How to negotiate, with the assistance of a mediator and experts, seemingly large differences in asset valuations in business
  • How resolution of valuation can help settle estate, family, and commercial disputes
  • How to effectively use experts in settling business disputes 

Who Should Attend

Because asset valuations arise in so many contexts, the session will be useful to neutrals, divorce counsel, commercial and trusts/estates litigators, business lawyers involved with closely held businesses, and restructuring lawyers.
