Calculating Damages in Price-Fixing Cases in the United States, Canada, and the European Union
American Bar Association Section of Litigation, The Class Actions and Derivative Suits Newsletter, Spring 2017
An Analysis Group team comprising President Pierre Cremieux, Managing Principal Marc Van Audenrode, and Vice President Marissa Ginn published “Calculating Damages in Price-Fixing Cases in the United States, Canada, and the European Union” in the Spring 2017 edition of the Class Actions and Derivative Suits newsletter of the American Bar Association's Section of Litigation. The article explains the impact that price elasticities can have on damages awards in three different jurisdictions—the US federal courts, Canada, and the European Union—and provides basic examples to show some of the mathematical underpinnings of overcharge damages calculations, pass-on, and lost profits on lost sales.
