Experts distinguish lost profits from lost business value

In claiming economic damages, a business may seek to recover either lost profits or lost value—but it can’t seek both. Its choice of the exclusive remedy will often depend on the circumstances of the case as well as the applicable law, and not many courts will allow a “second bite at the apple” if financial experts and attorneys get it wrong. To make the right decision and understand its ramifications in the litigation and valuation process, register for Part 11 of BVR’s Online Symposium on Litigation & Economic Damages, "Lost Profits v. Lost Business," featuring Edward McDonough and Laureen Ryan (both Alvarez & Marsal) on June 19.
