Business and Personal Damages

The central theme of the problems presented to Dr. Kamin is the need for a valuation of an economic asset.  This theme is captured in the name “ValuEconomics.” 

In business litigation the asset may be a “stream” of profits that is claimed to have been lost or impaired because of a contract breach or wrongful action.  A business may have experienced a diminution of value or goodwill or may have been lost altogether.  Valuations of businesses and business interests are also needed in bankruptcies and dissolutions.

There may be a claim of infringement of California intellectual property—patent damage, trademark damages, copyright damages--or of business trade dress, or misappropriation of a trade secret. A claim of securities fraud requires an estimate of the economic loss experienced by investors. Assessment of antitrust damages requires analysis of economic damages and of allegedly wrongful economic conduct by an economic damages expert. In personal litigation involving claims of personal injury, wrongful termination or wrongful death, the asset requiring valuation is the individual’s impaired earnings stream. Forensic Economics is the name used to describe valuation of personal damages.

Dr. Kamin is adept and deeply experienced in all of these areas.  You are welcome to call Dr. Kamin at 323.653.9555 for a preliminary discussion of your matter without obligation.
