The valuation of damages in an international arbitration is one of the most important phases of the procedure. Many lawyers leave this process completely to economists and other experts without trying to understand the valuation process. However, the damages analysis, the expert’s preparation, and the lawyer’s ability to advocate on damages at a hearing can be limited if the lawyer does not partner with the expert to prepare the damages case. In this course, students and practitioners will learn how to select a damages expert, understand the expert’s valuation techniques, and work with that expert to build a well-supported damages model (or identify flaws in the adversary’s model).
