Emerging issues posed by COVID-19 in the field of business valuations and transactions. Speakers will discuss how COVID-19 factors into negotiations to purchase businesses, including how buyers and sellers evaluate risk and make predictions about their future investments; how COVID-19 changes deal structures and the contingency plans now required to close deals; and how COVID-19 impacts the valuation process, including how business appraisers evaluate COVID-19-related losses.
In addition to all of the unprecedented changes affecting just about every aspect of their lives in 2020, probate and guardianship attorneys were faced with many changes in the Florida Probate Rules, the Florida Probate Code, and the Florida Guardianship Law. Because court rules and statutes can have different effective dates, careful attention is required to ensure that documents filed with the court and served on interested persons comply with the current judicial and legislative requirements. This program will cover five pieces of legislation and five Florida Supreme Court opinions that affected probate and guardianship practitioners beginning in 2020.
