Associate Director, NERA Economic Consulting
[email protected]

Rob Patton is an associate director within NERA’s securities and finance and international arbitration practice groups. In this role, he applies nearly two decades of experience in economics, finance and valuation to questions arising in legal disputes, public policy, and business.

Who’s Who Legal: Arbitration describes Mr Patton as a ‘knowledgeable, thorough, responsive, objective and fair’ expert who is ‘shockingly well prepared, a great writer and a hell of a witness on the stand’. He has submitted expert reports in multiple venues, including Ontario Superior Court, England and Wales High Court, and the Supreme Court of British Columbia, and has been qualified as an expert witness and testified at trial.

In commercial disputes, including in international arbitration proceedings, Mr Patton has analysed lost profits in matters alleging defamation, breach of contract and other alleged wrongful conduct. Mr Patton’s analyses in commercial disputes combine traditional valuation approaches, such as a discounted cash flow approach, with techniques from finance and economics.

Mr Patton has published studies of financial regulation and other public policy issues and authored articles on economic and valuation techniques, including event studies. Publications that have discussed or cited his work include Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Financial Post, CFO magazine and Law360.
