Business Divorce Roundtable
About This Show
When co-owners of a business can no longer get along, they need a divorce – a business divorce. The Business Divorce Roundtable presents lively conversations with top experts from a variety of fields – lawyers, judges, mediators, appraisers, accountants, and academicians – on the legal and practical issues including business valuation that business owners and their professional advisors need to know to navigate the turbulent waters of a business partnership breakup.
The Business Divorce Roundtable is hosted by Peter Mahler, a partner at the Farrell Fritz law firm in New York City and author of the New York Business Divorce blog. www.nybusinessdivorce.com.

Episode 10: The Marketability Discount Revisited - Interview with Greg Barber
Dec 8 16
The marketability discount as applied in New York fair value proceedings remains a hot topic in business valuation and legal circles. In this episode, I interview business appraiser Greg Barber of Barber Analytics who recently published in the NY State Bar Association Journal a thoughtful and scholarly article on New York’s approach to the marketability discount – one not followed in the great majority of states – in which he analyzes the leading New York case authorities and proposes a flexible, economics-based approach to the discount’s application. You can read Greg’s article by visiting his Barber Analytics website. I also recommend listening to Episodes 1 and 2 of this podcast in which I interviewed another leading voice on the topic of marketability discount, Chris Mercer.
