The fastest growing area for business appraisers is in the field of litigation support. Most books on this topic focus on the appraisal side of the process, while this book shows that the best way for appraisers to find the business opportunities is to understand the litigation process and then apply their correct role as appraisers to better participate in the assignment. This title will help eliminate the fear factor, which many appraisers share about courtroom testimony through an inside look into the anatomy of a lawsuit. Understanding this process will also open up business opportunities.
