Standards and Ethics Q&A Hotline Disclaimer

It is NACVA’s goal to provide answers to every question a member might have as it pertains to the services they provide that fall within the scope of the Association’s support to the business consulting community. Specifically, we support professionals providing services in business valuation, financial litigation consulting and expert testimony, and all areas of financial forensics analysis and consulting.

Our Moderators are human and thus, the answers they provide are not infallible. Their knowledge comes from education, experience, common sense, observation, and judgment, with judgement being the keyword. Judgement incorporates the weighting of each of the other elements from which advice is derived, and for that reason, answers given to a specific question could be different depending on who you ask.

We believe we have recruited the best people in the industry to be our Hotline Moderators, and we believe you will receive smart and expert answers to your questions. Moderators supporting the Standards and Ethics Q&A Hotline are drawn from current and prior members of NACVA’s Standards Board (SDB) and Ethics Oversight Board (EOB) and thus have the backing of the entire board with whom they can consult, at the Moderator’s discretion, should he/she feel the question at hand warrants SDB insight and deliberation. By electing to use this service, you agree to hold NACVA, the SDB, the EOB, and the Moderator harmless from any responsibility for answers and/or advice given to your questions. And you acknowledge that you understand we have no responsibility if these answers and/or advice are adjudicated to be incorrect, partially correct, incomplete, inadequate, a misinterpretation, or in any way faulty. Furthermore, you agree not to draw NACVA, the SDB, the EOB or the Moderator into any litigation where Moderator’s answers/advice was relied upon.
