Professional Competence, states that analysts should “use professional judgment in developing the estimate of value.”   Many analysts use professional judgement as a defense in justifying positions taken in a litigation regardless of whether their “judgment” is reasonable or not.  However, SSVS also requires that analysts “consider and apply appropriate valuation approaches and methods” in addition to exercising judgment – and this provision in SSVS is often overlooked.  This seminar will present a discussion of this issue and will be illustrated with actual litigation case studies.<?xml:namespace prefix="u5" />
