About this event

In breaches of contract, valuation experts on opposing sides can substantially disagree on the quantification of damages. The disparity in quantum is often due to a disagreement on assumptions.

This Building Knowledge will focus on three recent breaches of contract matters. Where did the experts disagree and how were those matters resolved? We explore five key technical areas the experts disagreed on and answer these questions:
– what are the methods, and which is the best?
– for what period should damages be assessed?
– how are lost revenue and lost profits estimated?
– what is the appropriate discount rate?
-what other issues cause disagreement?
