  Description  

Refreshed & Revised Version Now Available!

Litigation Appraising: Specialized Topics and Applications was expanded from two to three days and delves more deeply into inverse condemnation, an exciting niche market with increasing demand for appraisers. One of three courses in the Litigation Professional Development Program, this course now offers more hands-on applications giving you the opportunity to solve problems and put theory into practice.

Specialized topics covered include environmental contamination, ad valorem tax assessments, construction defects, bankruptcies, fraud and misrepresentation, income and estate tax disputes, inverse condemnation, contract disputes and equitable distribution in divorces cases. Through problem-solving activities, participants will apply new concepts and address how to best handle valuation and reporting issues in a professional legal setting. Participants will gain an understanding of the terminology and concepts involved in litigation valuation services in specialty areas and will learn about the many opportunities available for expanding their practices in litigation valuation.

Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
• Understand desirable behavior of a witness.
• Recognize alternative methods of quantifying the impact of contamination.
• Recognize the impact of the automatic stay provision.
• Recognize alternative remedies and methods of measuring damage in fraud cases.
• Recognize the difference between regulatory take and physical invasion take in inverse condemnation.

Note: This course is in the Litigation Professional Development Program. For more information, click here.
