The Global Damages Review: Editor's Preface
In the inaugural edition of this publication, we 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 presentation of damages.
Like the second edition, in this third edition we expand on that analysis with recent changes to the rules, and the authors also summarise noteworthy cases from the various jurisdictions. Upon reviewing these cases, one is struck by the somewhat consistent approach taken to addressing these issues, although one must remain cognisant of the differences that exist.
We are also fortunate to have expanded the roster of participating jurisdictions to include China.
I hope that you find this publication to be an interesting and informative resource and, as always, please feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions.
