Accuracy event in Amsterdam: ‘How to navigate the damages expert’s valuation report’

 On Thursday 20 April Accuracy hosted a well-attended event for litigation and arbitration lawyers on the topic ‘How to navigate the damages expert’s valuation report.’

Accuracy’s valuation experts Bas van Helden (Accuracy Netherlands) and Roula Harfouche (Accuracy UK) provided insights into major points to look out for when reviewing a damages expert’s report such as the basis of valuation (fair value or market value), the “historical” but for scenario, the discount rate and pre-award interest.

Bas van Helden, a partner in Accuracy’s Amsterdam office, has broad experience with complex valuation situations including damage assessment, valuation in dispute contexts and expert determinations. He is currently working on an independent valuation of a SaaS company in relation to the squeeze-out of minority shareholders before the Enterprise Chamber of the Dutch court and has recently prepared an expert report for a financial services company in an IP dispute with a competitor.

Roula Harfouche, a partner in Accuracy’s London office, specialises in contentious valuations, with over 17 years’ experience in complex damage assessments in arbitration and litigation cases involving contract breaches, investment treaty claims, transaction-related disputes, and IP infringement. She has been appointed as expert, has testified, and has been involved in matters in LCIA, ICC, SCC and ICSID arbitration forums, under the UNCITRAL rules, and before the UK High Court, Family Division and Patents Court.
