How Citrin Cooperman Can Help

We work closely with attorneys representing business entities, high net worth individuals, insurance companies, and governmental agencies. Once engaged, it’s our job to assist in demonstrating that the damages incurred were foreseeable, that they were caused by the defendant, and that the amount of harm can be quantified to a reasonable degree of certainty.

You can count on us to:

  • Assist counsel during the discovery process, identifying key documents required to develop a damage model.
  • Develop a comprehensive damage model supported by appropriate economic and financial theories.
  • Analyze company, industry, and general economic data to ascertain the appropriate risk in achieving the claimed damage stream.
  • Prepare a well-documented expert and/or rebuttal report, supporting the selected amount, and measure of damages.
  • Testify at a deposition and assist counsel during the course of the opposing expert’s deposition.
  • Testify at a trial and assist counsel during the course of the opposing expert’s trial testimony.
  • Assist counsel, if necessary, in post-trial proceedings.
