The Global Damages Review: Editor's Preface

The inaugural edition of this publication a few years ago addressed various rules that set boundaries on what is permissible damages evidence. The focus in that publication was to survey the codified rules and common law principles underpinning the analysis and quantification of financial loss or damages and the presentation of the same.

Subsequent editions have expanded on that analysis, including additional discussion of the key principles, updates on rule changes and discussion of noteworthy cases from the various jurisdictions. One observes that though jurisdictional differences obviously exist, nonetheless 'a loss is a loss is a loss' and that is the common thread to be focused on in determining the relevant quantum.

I hope that you find this publication to be a helpful resource and I look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
