IEF can take an advisory role focusing on the economics of a claim and assisting the legal team with identifying a damages framework that ties to the legal theory of the case.
We can also provide advice during a litigation or arbitration that could help with settlement negotiations or with managing expert witnesses. Where third-party expert witnesses are involved, IEF can help to define the relevant questions and scope for those witnesses, thereby focusing the experts on only those analyses that are essential to the case.
As opposed to an independent expert role, we can take an advisory role focusing on the economics of a claim. IEF can assist the legal team with identifying a damages framework that ties to the legal theory of the case. We can advise on potential areas of weakness and strength in damages arguments and assessments.
Some of our claims advisory experience includes:
- Providing initial valuation advice on a potential expropriation claim in Africa
- Analysing investment portfolio losses under multiple investment scenarios to assist with settlement negotiations between an investment management firm and its client
