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.

Documentary Evidence 15th Edition

Now in its 15th edition (first published 40 years ago), Documentary Evidence prides itself on being up to date. In the fast-moving world of civil procedure, and the vast amount of caselaw on disclosure and privilege, it is rewritten on a three-year cycle.

The book is a comprehensive guide to the legal obligations of disclosure. Logically presented and lucidly written, it provides detailed analysis and sensible practical advice. Following a chronological structure, it shows when and how a practitioner should take action in relation to the obligation to disclose. It is a standard work that is often cited in court judgments.

Under the Civil Procedure Rules the parties to an action are encouraged to adopt a cards-on-the-table approach toward the exchange of information, not just once litigation has commenced but before as well. It is likely in the early stages that a few documents will be identified as being relevant or key to the matter at hand. These will be used to provide advice as to the merit or not of proceeding with the dispute. If the decision is taken to proceed, the law imposes a requirement to make full and proper disclosure, which is the process whereby the parties to an action disclose to each other all documents in their possession, custody or power relating to matters in question in the action. This title deals with the nature and scope of the obligation to disclose.
