This two-credit virtual presentation focuses on how business valuations in matrimonial matters have been affected - in some cases dramatically - by recent events and new legislation. In addition to a general overview of business valuation and the methods of valuation, the panel discusses the impact of the economic shutdown in 2020 due to the pandemic. The presentation explores how financial results for the year 2020 may be viewed by business appraisers in their projection of future earnings to prepare supportable business valuations for divorces commenced during the pandemic and in 2021.

The presenters discuss significant impacts of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on business valuations, including how the Act will continue to have complex ramifications as certain provisions sunset around 2025. The presentation also addresses effects of the new tax law on valuations and what to look for in reviewing a valuation report.

These timely issues are presented by two outstanding forensic valuators, Scott DeMarco, CEO, Equitable Value LLC, and Glenn Liebman of Klein Liebman and Gressen LLC. In addition, the Honorable Robert S. Ondrovic, JSC, who is currently presiding in the Matrimonial Part of Westchester County Supreme Court, speaks on these topics with a view from bench, and litigator Erik Kristensen, Esq., of BodnarMilone LLP, speaks with a view from the bar.
