Damages, Expert Evidence and Valuation in Commercial Disputes in India

Jurisprudence surrounding the law of damages and valuation has remained constantly in flux. However, despite being at the forefront of commercial litigation and arbitration landscape, there is a lack of dedicated and reliable authorities devoted to the study of this area of law in India. The central objective of Damages, Expert Evidence and Valuation in Commercial Disputes in India is to bridge that gap. With contributions authored by practitioners across several common law jurisdictions in addition to India, there is a conscious attempt to produce a body of work that, though Indian law–facing, is well contextualized within the developments in common law jurisdictions and provides a comparative analysis wherever appropriate.
 

The book is aimed at practitioners, legal academics, and judges in the hope that it will be useful in shaping the jurisprudence surrounding damages, its quantification, and the use of expert evidence in India.
