19th July 2022

Watch the recording of 'Business valuations in financial remedy proceedings - at last a science rather than an art?', first broadcast on Wednesday 20th July 2022.

In this webinar, chaired by Nicholas Allen QC (29 Bedford Row), Thomas Rodwell (Rodwell Disputes Advisory), Roger Isaacs (Milsted Langdon), Fiona Hotston Moore (FRP Advisory) and Harry Oliver QC (1 KBW) discuss valuation issues including Mltpl of which Thomas is a founder. Can this new software revolutionise the way that valuations are obtained and used in FR proceedings? Is this finally the end of ‘arid, abstruse and expensive black-letter accountancy valuations’?
