Expert Witness Symposium (In-person 2 day live event)

The CICBV is pleased to present its inaugural Expert Witness Symposium.  This event will provide CBVs with the unique opportunity to learn from, and with, renowned CBVs, senior legal counsel, and a federal court judge in an interactive and practical format.  The Symposium will be of interest to CBVs who are looking to either brush up on, or develop, credible expert witness skills. Participants interested in attending this session should have some litigation support experience.

Space is very limited – don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to learn from the best!  Click here to view the full agenda and presenter information.

Day 1 agenda (8:15 AM – 5:00 PM)

Expert Witness Roles and Responsibilities (Beyond the Box)

Knowledge is King – A Good Technical Base is Essential

Expert Reports: Strategies & Key Principles

Standing Up To Cross Examination

Day 2 agenda (8:30 AM – 12:15 PM)

Mock Cross Examination and Feedback

On Day 2, participants will directly apply the information gained in Day 1 of the Symposium.  Select CBVs will receive a case dealing with common business valuation issues well in advance of the session, and will have the opportunity to practice the skills and techniques learned in Day 1 under mock cross-examination by Gordon Capern (with Andrew Freedman), and Justice Judith Snider presiding.  Helpful and constructive feedback will be provided by Gordon, Andrew, and Judith to these CBVs, who will benefit from an enhanced expert witness skills toolkit for years to come.

While attendance on Day 2 is open to everyone who registers for the Symposium, this unique opportunity to be cross-examined will only be open to four CBVs.  If you are interested in being one of these four, please contact Deborah Hanlon at Deborah.hanlon@cicbv.caNote that the cross-examination and feedback will occur in front of all those attending Day 2 of the Symposium, and all those attending Day 2 of the Symposium may also provide feedback; however, Day 2 of the Symposium will not be live-streamed in order to provide a non-threatening and comfortable environment for those CBVs volunteering to be cross-examined.
