IBA Arb40 – Young ICCA Skills Training Workshop
The Computation of Damages:
Principles and Practical Approaches

Date: 10 December 2019
Time: 10:00 - 17:00
Venue: Aluko & Oyebode, 1 Murtala Muhammed Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria

Young ICCA and the IBA Arb40 are jointly organising a Skills Training Workshop on the computation of damages. The workshop starts at 10 a.m. and is scheduled for 10 December 2019 at Aluko & Oyebode, 1 Murtala Muhammed Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria.

As you might know, in most arbitrations, the primary relief sought by the claimant is damages. Therefore, in order to effectively represent their clients’ best interests, arbitration practitioners must have a clear understanding of the principles underlying damages computation, as well as the methodologies available for proof of damages. Equally important, practitioners must develop know-how around practical issues such as the nature of evidence required to support damages claims, and case management to ensure the damages claim is presented in the most effective way possible.

The workshop will be split into two sessions. The first session, led by legal practitioners, will discuss, the applicable legal principles, practical aspects of a damages claim and the techniques for proactive case management.

The second session, led by quantum experts, will discuss one or more typical quantum claims, to illustrate the methodologies used in calculating the quantum of damages, and in resisting damages claims.

The workshop will conclude at 5pm with a cocktail reception.
