Comprehensive Guide to Economic Damages 5th Edition

The Comprehensive Guide to Economic Damages, 5th Edition edited by Nancy J. Fannon and Jonathan M. 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, the guide 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 have drilled deeper on the existing chapters and broadened the scope of damages topics covered. With 43 chapters and over 300 court case digests, the guide provides the most comprehensive analysis of any damages text available.

Highlights of the new edition include:

A knowledge base that allows for a better working relationship between a financial expert and the attorney–Experts are most beneficial to attorneys when they’re well-informed about damage remedies and the context in which they are calculated. When an expert is more knowledgeable, he or she can be more valuable to the attorney in terms of the various options for remedies, given a particular context

Comprehensive materials on a variety of damages measures including:

Measurements on lost profits or value
Unjust enrichment
Intellectual property damages
Other commercial damages
Expanded content on personal injury and wrongful termination

Seven new chapters–Among other topics, new chapters address:

Theft of trade secrets
Damages in cases involving rights of publicity and for franchises
And, more!

In-depth analysis—This guide includes expanded analysis of motions to exclude experts and a review of the concept of reasonable certainty, based on significant research on the topic

A comprehensive reference to case law – Interprets what the courts have accepted as evidence for damages claims—and what the courts have rejected and why
