The Litigator's Damages Blueprint

The Litigator's Damages Blueprint
The Pragmatic Solution

By Richard F. Bero

"Now available for the first time in print, this book will provide you with a process that our team calls "The Pragmatic Solution" to help you manage your damages case. It offers a structure to engage fully with your damages analysis as you move from early preparation up to and through trial.

"How and where do damages fit in? You may have dealt with damages in cases many times before. Or, possibly, not at all. Whatever your experience, if the case before you involves damages considerations, they may be significant. They may be critical. You and your team will benefit from a structured process for the damages portion of the case.

"This book will guide you to work with your damages expert to develop a well-reasoned analysis
that will align with your liability case."

— Rick Bero, Author

The Comprehensive Guide to Economic Damages

BVR Economic Damages Guide

The Comprehensive Guide to Economic Damages, 5th Edition edited by Nancy J. Fannon and Jonathan M. Dunitz, contains two chapters written by Rick Bero of The BERO Group.

Bridging the gap between the economics in damages cases and what the courts say about the calculations and evidentiary requirements, it provides a deep and rich resource, found nowhere else, for financial experts and attorneys seeking guidance on damage calculations.

Written from the perspectives of financial experts and attorneys, the guide blends the financial expert's mastery of accepted methods and procedures with the attorney's expertise in legal issues, while providing in-depth analysis and interpretation of the continually expanding body of case law. It describes the different types of damages and how to calculate them, while presenting the problems that may arise and how stakeholders can address them. With each successive edition of this guide, the authors have drilled deeper on the existing chapters and broadened the scope of damages topics covered.
