Not surprisingly, most of the issues involved valuation.

     

    While we generally don't have cases quite that large in Western New York, the issues are the same. The panel will be discussing recent trends in the valuation of closely-held businesses, real estate, and natural resource assets (timber, oil and gas, etc.)
