This fifth edition of the Litigation Services Handbook includes several new chapters, incorporates a fresh look at several chapters by new authors, and retains the best of the existing chapters, refreshed by the original authors to assure inclusion of the most current and relevant information on each topic.

Each of the 39 chapters in this edition was authored by accountants, economists, and academics, who have served as experts in their fields and by the litigators who regularly retain them. Together, these chapters explain the financial theory supporting the practical application of the accepted methods to litigated issues, and clarify the relevant case law and statutes.
