Damages Analysis

When business disputes involve complex – and oftentimes contested – financial,
economic, or accounting issues, companies and their counsel turn to Ankura for the specialized and authoritative technical expertise that is often critical to successful damages assessment. Ankura’s experts regularly testify on the reliability and value of economic damages. We apply our problem-solving skills and deep industry knowledge in civil and criminal disputes, regulatory proceedings, and other types of disputes.

Ankura professionals span a wide range of skills and expertise, including accounting, economics, finance, statistics, data science, and other disciplines. We are adept at analyzing business operations and records; industry, financial, and market conditions; and the viability of alternative damages theories and calculations of compensatory damages. We assess “measures of damages” such as lost sales and profits, increased costs, price erosion, and diminution of asset and shareholder and business entity value.

Our experts have studied causation and damages issues across virtually all types of disputes. We have testified to the proper application of damages theories, as well as to the related quantification, in matters involving:

  • Lost profits
  • Loss of value
  • Price erosion
  • Reasonable royalties
  • Restitution and unjust enrichment
  • Reliance
  • Contract damages
  • Fraudulent conveyance
  • Impact of alleged negligence
  • Financial imprudence
  • Misrepresentation, mismanagement, defalcation, and diversion of resources
