BV/Lit Support practices managed to cross the threshold into a new year, though not without dragging the pandemic behind them. Uncle Covid has made quite a mess and, in the process, provided some lessons about the Business of Valuation.

Practices are adapting to that mess in new ways. We have some examples. Guest columnist, Ellen Warden, writes about the value of remote-work policies. Believe it or not, you can leverage the disruption in the interest of making changes you always wanted to make. We will explain how. Finally, you understand that lowering risk increases value. We’ll show you how to reduce hiring risk.

We want you to get more out of this newsletter than the time you put into reading it. We always welcome your comments and suggestions for information that would be useful in your practice. We also invite you to contribute material. Send us an email to: [email protected]
