DeBresser Wintrip Inc. is engaged by clients and their lawyers to assist Courts, arbitrators or mediators in the calculation of damages and loss quantification related to:
- Class action disputes
- Breach of contract
- Breach of duty
- Business interruption
- Proceedings under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act
- Personal injury
- Medical malpractice
While each matter calling for quantification of damages is unique, we call upon damages theory and our years of experience to develop a damages model that makes sense given the facts of each case.
Our damages analysis starts with counsel’s liability argument and flows consistently from there with a careful analysis of the subject individuals/companies, the status of the industry and economy at the relevant time.
Generally speaking, there are many assumptions that will have to be made in performing a damages analysis and we support these assumptions with facts, documents, and sometimes the opinions of other experts to complete a calculation that can withstand the scrutiny of the trier of fact.
We present our calculations in a report, often taking very complex financial issues and communicating them in a way that is easy to understand for opposing counsel, experts, and the trier of fact.
