This CLE course will provide litigators with a game plan on overcoming traps with handling intangible economic damages. The panel will discuss methods of proof, complexities with valuation and effective use of experts when proving or defending these types of cases.

These types of damages are difficult to prove or defend and are difficult to quantify, adding to the need for litigators to become proficient in developing techniques to address the complexities.
