March 27, 2024

Managing Principal Samuel Weglein and Vice Presidents Mark Berberian and Chris Feige joined a roundtable discussion with partners from Hughes Hubbard & Reed and Latham & Watkins on the use of event studies to assess value in international arbitration. The presentation, part of the New York International Arbitration Center’s (NYIAC’s) “Working with a Damages/Quantum Expert” series, was titled “Valuations in International Arbitration using Event Studies.”

Dr. Weglein opened the discussion by providing a brief historical overview of the development and use of event studies. Mr. Feige then explored several topics related to event studies, including their purpose, usefulness in litigation, mechanics, and specific applications. He summarized some of the potential confounding complexities surrounding the use of event studies and outlined key points for practitioners and decision makers to consider as they review applications of the tool. Mr. Berberian then provided examples of potential uses of event studies in arbitration settings with respect to both merits and quantum issues. In the remainder of the discussion, participants examined relevant case decisions and contemplated the use of event studies in international arbitration.
