Program Description

The webinar will use vignettes to dive deeper into the four commonly reorganized methods that economic damages experts commonly use to calculate lost profits: the Before-and-After Method, the Yardstick Method, the Sales Projection Method, and the Market Share Method.

The webinar will guide the lost profits expert as to which method to choose, what information and/or documentation he or she needs for each method, and the court cases that support the use of each method. Each method will be presented using a “mini case study” that will illustrate the generally accepted and peer-reviewed methodology for applying each particular method. Finally, the “tricks and traps” specific to each method will be covered.
