There are several methodologies within each approach. Deciding which approach to use is fact sensitive. Each valuation is unique.<br /> <br /> Register today to hear some of the state's leading accountants, judges and attorneys shed light on the nuances of business valuations through a discussion of different valuations scenarios that are frequently encountered in chancery, family and business disputes. Our expert panel will also bring you up-to-date about the latest developments in this area, including a discussion about holding in the recent New Jersey Supreme Court case, I.E. Test, LLC v. Carroll (decided August 2, 2016), in which the Court outlined a seven pronged test lower courts should use in deciding whether to expel an LLC member.<br /> <br /> <strong>Program Agenda:</strong><br /> 5:30 Introduction; Purpose of Business Valuation in Chancery and Matrimonial<br /> Matters - Andrea Sullivan, Esq.<br /> <br /> 5:45 Valuation Theory: Business Valuation-Approaches and Methodologies -<br /> William J.

This is particularly true in the case of documentation for a senior secured credit facility, as these agreements are long and complex by their nature. Although certain provisions in senior credit agreements, such as the interest rate, are obviously pure business matters, there are other business provisions in these documents that are not quite as obvious but are equally if not more important. This webinar will identify these provisions, discuss why they are important from a business perspective, and give some helpful pointers in drafting and negotiating them with the other side.<br /> <br /> <strong>Program Details:</strong><br /> Thursday July 20, 2017, 9:00 am to 10:30 am (Eastern)<br /> Cole Schotz, P.C. 25 Main Street, Hackensack, NJ 07601<br /> <br /> Register to attend <a href="https://westlegaledcenter.com/search/displayDailyWebcastSearchResults.jsf">here</a>.<br /> Register for live webcast <a href="https://westlegaledcenter.com/program_guide/course_detail.jsf?classroomCourseId=100162051&amp;videoCourseId=100162051&amp;audioCourseId=0&amp;textCourseId=0&amp;sc_cid=null">here</a>.<br /> **Discount code CSEVENT at checkout will get you complimentary access**<br type="_moz" /> &nbsp;</p>http://www.coleschotz.com?t=39&format=xml&directive=0&stylesheet=rss&records=10Foreign Persons Investing in US Real Estate and Other Assets: Partnership and Other Structures, Treaty Planning and Financing Strategies20 Jul 2017Eventshttp://www.coleschotz.com?t=39&format=xml&directive=0&stylesheet=rss&records=10Michele Glass is speaking at the NJICLE 2017 Environmental Law Forumhttp://www.coleschotz.com/?t=40&an=65671&format=xml&p=586023 Jun 2017Events<p><strong>Forum Location: </strong>Icona Golden Inn, 7849 Dune Dr Avalon, NJ 08202<br /> <br /> <u><strong>Saturday, June 24th, 12:00pm EST</strong></u><br /> <strong>The Fate of Environmental Law under the New Administration</strong><br /> <em>Mark L.
