Common Commercial Conflicts - Lost Profit Cases

Lost Profit Cases

Business does not always go as planned. When a vendor breaches their contract to supply key parts, a lender reneges on their loan commitment, or a fire decimates a central distribution facility, the impacted business may have grounds to seek compensation in the form of the profits it would have earned had everything just gone smoothly. In order to successfully win (or defend against) any such claim, one must compile and analyze certain types of documents and information, understand and apply appropriate methodologies, and present their case in a manner consistent with that which the court or trier of fact requires. In this webinar, the expert panel discusses the circumstances that warrant lost profits claims, key considerations for both the claimant and defendant, and how such claims will ultimately be evaluated.
