The authors of Calculating and Proving Damages draw on their experience and specialized knowledge to explain and clarify the techniques needed in virtually any damages situation you are likely to encounter.

Throughout, the authors focus on the practical as well as the legal. With this book in hand, all parties will find it easier to estimate damages and formulate the best strategy for trying or settling a case.
