Private damages

Embridge provides damage calculations to plaintiffs and defendants during all phases of private litigation. We have in-depth experience in regression analysis and other econometric techniques to establish the causal link between the infringement and the damage suffered. Embridge provides sound economic analysis to law firms and private companies related to damage calculations. Our services include:

  • The pre- and post-approach to estimate overcharges by comparing pre- and post-prices;
  • The cost-based approach to calculate the overcharges through comparing marginal unit cost plus a ‘reasonable’ mark-up with actual prices.
  • Econometric models to simulate pricing based on economic theory of oligopolistic behaviour; and
  • Econometric models performing price prediction regressions.

Solid economic evidence has proven to be essential in court. Embridge presents its findings in a clear and precise manner, suitable in complex damage trials.
