Marcum has extensive experience assisting counsel and their clients in evaluating and calculating damages in complex commercial and personal injury litigation. We have developed proven methodologies and economic models for purposes of quantifying damages.

Because of our extensive experience in this area, we are aware that the amount of recoverable damages, as opposed to alleged damages, determines the outcome of litigation. Our professionals are familiar with causation issues and work closely with counsel to ensure that our damages calculations are performed in accordance with applicable rules, regulations and case law in the particular jurisdiction in which the matter is being litigated.
