These are some of the services we provide:

  • Economic damages analyses based on human capital economics, the received literature among economists who address, outside the courtroom, questions virtually identical to those addressed in litigation.
  • Support throughout discovery, including document requests and interrogatories, to facilitate comprehensive assessment of damages.
  • Detailed reports of damages analyses with appropriate citations to the mainstream economics literature to support general acceptance and reliability of principles and methods.
  • Detailed review of the reports of opposing economists, focusing on the compatibility of their methodology with that found in the legitimate scientific literature, as well as the economic support for assumptions made.
  • Input for depositions of other experts regarding economic theory and generally accepted economic methodologies.
  • Support in the drafting of Frye and Daubert challenges to the testimony of opposing experts, focusing on the compatibility of their testimony with reliable and generally accepted economic methodologies.
  • Damages analyses tailored to settlement negotiations.
