The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration - Third Edition

In the vast majority of international arbitrations, one or more parties seek damages. As such, damages are a critical component of most cases. A tribunal that misunderstands the relevant damages issues does not render justice to the parties.

The Guide to Damages in International Arbitration is a desktop reference work for those who'd like greater confidence when dealing with the numbers. In particular, this third edition incorporates updated chapters from various authors and features several new chapters addressing such issues as best practices and issues in discounted cash flow models, full compensation and total reparation, and estimation of harm in antitrust damages actions.

It is pitched at the entry level, keeping things simple and easy to follow. This book is designed to help all participants in the international arbitration community understand damages issues more clearly and communicate those issues more effectively to tribunals to further the common objective of assisting arbitrators in rendering more accurate and well-reasoned awards on damages.
