Calculating economic damages in securities fraud litigation involves complex analysis of events and other market factors affecting securities prices that requires specialized knowledge and skills. BVA’s economists and financial professionals have extensive expertise providing consulting assistance and expert testimony in securities matters, such as those involving alleged violations of securities laws (such as Rule10b-5 and Section 11 damages), shareholder derivative securities class action stock price inflation matters, and fraud-on-the-market matters.
BVA’s professionals are also skilled in preparing defensible statistical analyses and detailed event studies required in many cases. Additionally, BVA has expertise in developing sophisticated trading models to compute out-of-pocket damages considering both trading (i.e., "in-and-out") damages as well as retention damages.
Our professionals have been retained by both plaintiffs’ and defendants’ counsel and have objectively assessed and critiqued economic arguments of opposing counsel and experts. In addition, our testifiers are skilled in articulating complex analyses in an understandable and coherent manner and delivering compelling testimony in defense of their opinions.
