The Global Damages Review

January 11, 2019

In this, the inaugural edition of The Global Damages Law Review, we survey the codified rules and common law principles underpinning the presentation of damages evidence. We also summarise recent common law decisions that provide new or improved guidance on these frameworks. This first edition summarises principles governing the quantification of expert financial evidence in select common law jurisdictions including the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia; and highlights important precedents from recent case law in each of the jurisdictions. 

Dechert attorneys, headed by Partner, Gary Mennitt, authored chapters on Global Principles of Compensatory Damages and the Jurisdiction of the United States.
