Litigation Economics and Expert Testimony
Strategic Finance assists client attorneys in all stages of litigation, including pretrial discovery, depositions, fact analysis, strategy planning, development of economic and financial damage models, critique of damage reports by opposing experts and preparation of well documented reports, exhibits and testimony. Our experts posses particular expertise in the application of sophisticated quantitative methods (e.g. econometric modeling) and extensive experience working with large data sets.
In addition to providing professional economic modeling and support of counsel, Strategic Finance experts understand that legal cases are ultimately decided by non economists. Thus, we emphasize the importance of preparing models, exhibits, reports and testimony that are concise, supportable and easily understood by judges and juries. We have found that by combining an oral presentation with explanatory graphs and reports, individuals with no prior training can comprehend elaborate economic analyses and appreciate the plausibility of the economist's conclusions.
Concise, supportable economic damage analysis and expert witness testimony can turn the tide in the courtroom. Our experienced, professional team is ready to work with yours. Members of the firm have testified before numerous federal and state courts. Recently, our experts developed the damage models for a case that resulted in a $175 million damage award, the largest compensatory damage award in California history.
