This CLE webinar will provide litigators with an overview of how financial experts quantify lost profits to help them understand the framework, bases and aspects of lost profits damages calculations. The panel will explain how to use this approach to prove or defend against a lost profits damages claim.

Description

The battle over lost profits damages in commercial litigation is contentious and can involve significant damages awards. Lost profits are often the most substantial aspect of the plaintiff’s claim, one of the most challenging types of damages to prove, and are particularly susceptible to attack.

In the duel over lost profits damages, both sides introduce experts to analyze and present complex financial documentation. Plaintiff’s experts must put forth damages studies that are credible and can withstand battering from the opposition.

In determining how best to counter the plaintiff’s damages claim, defense counsel faces a delicate balancing act between defending against liability and discrediting the plaintiff’s numbers as presented through a defense expert.

Listen as our panel discusses the framework, bases and aspects of lost profit damages calculations, and how to prove or defend against lost profit damages.
