Based on their 50 years of business valuation and career experience, Jay E. Fishman, FASA, FRICS and Jim Alerding, CPA/ABV will discuss from their perspectives the evolution of the valuation profession as to where it is today.

In a section of the presentation entitled “It’s Not that Simple,” Jay and Jim will  challenge some of the core concepts in business valuation and discuss experiences when each found themselves in a position that was untenable as an expert witness. “Sometimes you get out of the noose and other times you hang.”
