The underlying facts in a dispute are different and often unique in each instance. Different enterprises can have different cash, revenue and expense streams. Different business transactions have different consequences if they fail. There is no standard methodology that covers all damage situations. Lost profits depend on the enterprise’s past and/or expected future operations. Understanding the availability of resources and operating capacity are as important as analyzing debits and credits.

Having experience developing models and understanding the legal and economic principles for proving damages are the necessary ingredients for developing a sound, reasonable and sustainable damages model. The knowledge and experience of our professionals span many industries and types of business transactions, both large and complex, national and international. We also understand the limitations placed on damages models by the principles of causation, certainty and remoteness, the different elements of proof and the difference between compensation damages, restitution damages and punitive damages.
