Looking for the Forensic & Litigation Services Workshop?
(Separate registration and fee required.)

Business valuation and forensic and litigation services require a keen attention to detail — an almost scientific approach to solving complex problems. Accuracy and quality are key elements that factor into high performance. These two specialized workshops — whether taken independently or added together — provide a balance of essential elements to multiply your skills and increase your absolute value.
