The Importance of Data in Commercial Litigation

Jun 10, 2014

Join Edgeworth expert Michael Kheyfets and Latham & Watkins partner Belinda Lee for a complimentary Webinar on Wednesday, June 18, 12:30-1:30 p.m. ET. Edgeworth president Dr. John Johnson will moderate the Webinar.

Expert analysis in commercial litigation frequently--and increasingly--relies on very large and complex data sets. The development and implementation of these data sets in the litigation context has substantial impact on the discovery effort as well as on the credibility of arguments made by the litigants. In this Edgeworth Economics FORUM Webinar, Mr. Kheyfets and Ms. Lee will discuss how data is used in commercial litigation, describe data management best practices, and survey recent court decisions affected by experts' treatment of data.

He develops and analyzes large datasets for complex litigation matters and has employed statistical modeling to calculate damages for antitrust and labor disputes.

Her practice focuses on cartel matters and complex business litigation. Ms. Lee regularly represents US and Asian companies on abuse of dominance and price-fixing cartel investigations before regulators and courts in the US, Canada, Europe, Brazil, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and Australia.
