Commercial Damages

focused on the facts
Critical Understanding and Delivery

Quantifying sustained damages or analyzing sought damages may require the processing of large quantities of data and information. It may also require the identification of relevant and often interlaced facts provided by both parties. Our experienced and credentialed analysts have accumulated the business knowledge to understand the impact of a given set of circumstances on plaintiffs and defendants, as each case is unique. We have the data mining capabilities to process large quantities of transactions and related data. As consultants, we can analyze data and may provide the support needed to seek the appropriate remedy or provide rebuttal testimony when damages are sought.

The complexity of damage calculations in commercial matters requires the presentation of information in a clear and concise manner before the trier of fact. Our testifying skills have tangibly aided our clients in both deposition and trial. We have assisted in the calculation and critique of damages resulting from a variety of claims, including:

  • Antitrust
  • Breach of Contract
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Business Interruption
  • Construction
  • Conversion
  • Embezzlement
  • Fraud
  • Loss of Use

  • Professional Liability
  • Theft of Trade Secrets
  • Unfair Trade Practices
