In Grant Thornton’s recent Focus on Forensics newsletter, Neil Beaton and Michael Fahlman provide a foundation for understanding the differences between business valuation and lost profits damages calculation methods. “If a lost profits analysis is performed, can a business valuation analysis also be performed to measure the total damages owed?” ask the authors. “It can,” they respond, “as long as doing so will not cause duplicative damages.” Read their article, “Business damages measurement: Lost profits or business valuation?”to learn more.
Neil Beaton is also a contributing author to the recently updated Comprehensive Guide to Lost Profits Damages for Experts and Attorneys, edited by Nancy J. Fannon.
