From the Inside Flap

For business appraisers today, the fastest growing and most lucrative wellspring of new business is in the field of litigation support. Business appraisers who are able to add litigation support services to their entrepreneurial capabilities can significantly expand their client base and subsequently increase their profits. From the perspective of the appraiser, litigation support is a growth opportunity; a way to expand the practice and increase revenues. However, from the perspective of the client, it is much more. It may mean the difference between vindication or financial ruin. When it comes to the litigation process, an appraiser is much like a doctor. He or she must provide the best, most objective, and professional service to each and every client, without being swayed by public opinion, per–sonal bias, or financial considerations. In The Business Appraiser and Litigation Support, professional litigator and business appraiser Michele Miles provides a practical, step–by–step look at the courtroom techniques and deportment every aspiring expert witness must master. While most books on this topic focus on the appraisal side of the litigation process, this book is designed to provide appraisers with a better understanding of litigation as a whole and how best to apply their skills to the litigation process. The author views the role of business appraisers as litigation support professionals, expert witnesses, and damage consultants. She details the legal process from the initial demand letter through post–trial proceedings, easily translating the legal process so that the business appraiser can more accurately ascertain a client’s specific needs. By looking at the inside anatomy of a lawsuit and understanding the process, business appraisers will become more comfortable with the courtroom testimony procedures and more cognizant of new business opportunities. A well–balanced mix of both technical information and ethical considerations, The Business Appraiser and Litigation Support is a must for accountants and consultants seeking to expand their businessappraisal practices to include litigation support services, as well as other professionals who may be called upon to serve as expert witnesses.

1.0 out of 5 stars USELESS 4 Jan 2008
By Jacquie O - Published on
Not just a waste of money, but especially of time. Author recounts the obvious and there is nothing of substance or of practical use. Seems like author's objective is simply to be published and not to offer readers anything of real value. You can easily learn on your own and spare yourself the dry, generic regurgitation of other people's work. Look elsewhere for the material!
