Lost Profits Damages: Principles, Methods, and Applications

Book co-edited by Analysis Group

Jeffrey H. Kinrich, Managing Principal at Analysis Group, Inc., and Everett P. Harry III, senior partner at Harry-Torchiana LLP, have co-edited a comprehensive new book entitled, Lost Profits Damages: Principles, Methods, and Applications . The book, bringing together current thinking on an important litigation topic, is a practical, single-source reference for practitioners and others interested in areas related to lost profits, damages, and business valuation.

Intended for damages analysts, accountants, and litigation attorneys, Mr. Kinrich's and Mr. Harry's book covers a comprehensive range of topics in the field, including selecting appropriate methodologies, carrying out analyses, and defending work during a legal proceeding. Following a broad overview of the nature of lost profits damages, each subsequent chapter builds on the topics addressed earlier.

The book draws upon in-depth knowledge from 45 experts, including nine colleagues of Kinrich at Analysis Group, one of the largest private economics consulting firms with more than 800 professionals across 13 offices in North America, Europe, and Asia. Among the topics addressed by members of Analysis Group are a general introduction to lost profits (co-authored by Managing Principal John C. Jarosz and Principal Robert L. Vigil); proving loss causation (co-authored by Vice President Peter Rybolt); analyzing cost behavior (co-authored by Principal Elizabeth A. Eccher and Vice President James Rosberg, with Mr. Kinrich); using net cash flow versus accrual net income (co-authored by Managing Principal Bruce A. Strombom); and achieving lost sales as a consideration in damages analyses (co-authored by Managing Principals Rebecca Kirk Fair and Aaron Yeater). Other contributors represent well-respected firms such as Deloitte and KMPG.
