Pre-litigation damages assessments.
For some cases, even a ballpark estimate of damages prior to discovery can be difficult. For clients needing insights into the parties’ likely damages positions and magnitude of damages, answers arise through targeted research combined with expert analysis and adherence to the broad set of legal cases surrounding damages.
