What did the webinar cover?
Loss of opportunity cases can present significant challenges, as a party seeks to establish the likelihood of one or more hypothetical scenarios, and the value of an opportunity lost. This presentation detailed a proper approach to a loss of opportunity case, including what must be pleaded and proved to establish causation and loss, with an emphasis on the preparation of expert evidence relevant to the valuation of a lost opportunity. Attendees left with practical suggestions for supporting or challenging a loss of opportunity assessment as cost-effectively as possible.
The main topics covered were:
- Key principles which inform the assessment of damages in a loss of opportunity case;
- Examples of loss of opportunity cases, focusing on evidentiary requirements to prove causation and loss;
- Valuation concepts relevant to the assessment of loss, including the treatment of risk and uncertainty inherent in a hypothetical scenario;
- Practical guidance in framing and proving a loss of opportunity case.
