    Commercial damages occur in breach-of-contract and business-tort cases that result in claims of lost profits or diminished business goodwill or business value. Intellectual-property-infringement cases and antitrust cases also can involve such loss claims. The measurement of damages in these types of cases follows a basic methodology, with some variations in intellectual-property matters. Measurement of damages in securities-fraud cases uses a different approach.

    This paper presents a method for measuring economic damages in wrongful termination cases. Such cases present the damages expert with a problem since the available studies of earnings recovery after a job loss are based on a limited time period after a job loss and many workers never catch-up to the previous earnings level. A two-step approach is offered. First, the expert uses appropriate available empirical evidence to develop a typical earnings catch-up period. Second, the expert gathers information about case factors affecting the duration of the period to earnings catch-up. Using these factors, the expert modifies the base time period to develop a reasonable range of years for earnings catch-up. The ultimate choice of lost earnings is left for the court to decide, given the range presented by the expert. Cases directly or indirectly supporting this method are presented.

    Royalty auditing is a niche service that has exploded in popularity over the last 20 years. The primary purpose of a royalty audit is to test whether a licensee has complied with a license agreement or statutory requirement. The royalty auditor is hired by an intellectual property owner (aka, licensor) or minerals owner to inspect the books and records of a licensee primarily to determine if usage-based monetary amounts have been paid as contractually required. In addition to monetary damage calculations, most royalty audits examine for breach of contract in a wide variety of areas, such as intellectual property protection, record keeping, distribution channels, and permitted usage.

    In many bankruptcies the choice of how to proceed with a case turns critically on the level of debt the firm has and the sustainability of that debt. Effective negotiations with creditors or arguments in court require marshalling a cogent line of reasoning regarding the ability of a firm to handle the debt that it is carrying. This guide is intended to help attorneys understand the basic financial metrics that objectively determine whether a business can sustain its proposed debt load upon exiting bankruptcy.

    Abstract: This paper investigates whether firms vary the debt side of their capital structure, based on changes in investor demand for bonds. Examining asset flows into various asset classes over the last 30 years reveals that companies respond to recent increases in demand for bonds from investors by altering their capital structure towards greater use of debt. Firms are more likely to issue debt as demand for bonds rises, and their use of debt increases (decreases) in periods when demand for bonds is high (low) compared to periods when demand is not significantly changed. Firms use more (less) debt when spreads between corporate yields and Treasury rates are low (high), consistent with efforts by managers to adjust their debt issuances based on relative debt costs. These results hold after controlling for seasonality, firm effects, and macroeconomic conditions. These findings suggest that investor demand for debt needs to be taken into account when examining the capital structure puzzle.

    Let me tell you a sad story; Joe owned a marketing company and earned a prosperous living for several years. Joe's business was growing rapidly and all seemed right with the world. Then a trusted employee left Joe's firm, taking with him half of Joe's customers in violation of his non-compete agreement. Joe's business slowly suffered and lost customers until eventually his firm declared bankruptcy.
