Comprehensive Guide to Economic Damages, Fourth Edition
The Comprehensive Guide to Economic Damages, Fourth Edition (formerly The Comprehensive Guide to Lost Profits and Other Commercial Damages), edited by Nancy J. Fannon and Jonathan Dunitz, bridges the gap between the economics in damages cases and what the courts say about the calculations and evidentiary requirements. It provides a deep and rich resource, found nowhere else, for financial experts and attorneys seeking guidance on damage calculations.
Written from the perspectives of financial experts and attorneys, it blends the financial expert’s mastery of accepted methods and procedures with the attorney’s expertise in legal issues while providing in-depth analysis and interpretation of the continually expanding body of case law. It describes the different types of damages and how to calculate them, while presenting the problems that may arise and how stakeholders can address them. With each successive edition of this guide, the authors and editors have drilled deeper on the existing chapters and broadened the scope of damages topics covered. With nearly 1300 pages containing 39 chapters and over 240 court case digests, the guide provides the most comprehensive analysis of any damages text available.
Fannon and Dunitz’s Comprehensive Guide to Economic Damages, Fourth Edition is a major addition to the common body of knowledge in commercial damage measurement. Their analysis is comprehensive and thorough and provides a firm foundation for a practitioner’s application to specific cases and reports.
