Best Practices: Thought Leadership in Valuation, Damages, and
Transfer Price Analysis

Best Practices includes nearly 1,200 pages of thought leadership on a wide range of topics, including the valuation of private company securities and intangible assets, valuation for property tax purposes, valuation for ESOPs, fair value measurement for financial accounting purposes, transfer price analysis, and economic damages measurement.

This book provides an anthology of related discussions not found in most textbooks that address valuation, damages, or transfer price principles. Our focus is on topics that present themselves in situations where there is a risk—and a cost—of being wrong. Such situations include complex transactions, tax controversies, and litigation matters. Each Best Practices chapter is intended to present a stand-alone discussion of the current thought leadership on the indicated topic.

With a detailed index, this book will earn a place on the bookshelves of lawyers, valuation practitioners, forensic analysts, and other professionals involved in the practice of valuation, damages, or transfer price analysis.
