Kevin E. Cahill Discusses Paper at the EEA Conference in New York City
New York, NY
March 2, 2019
Kevin E. Cahill discussed a paper by Christopher Young at Rutgers University on non-compete and non-solicitation agreements. Dr. Young’s paper argues that shorter terms within these agreements can incentivize wrongful conduct by competitors and, to address this concern, proposes using the equity value of clients stolen to calculate economic damages. Dr. Cahill’s comments focused on the construction of the but-for world in these types of cases using existing methodologies, most notably with respect to the ramp-up period for client acquisitions and the reputational and pricing impacts on a firm’s existing and new clients. Also at the Eastern Economics Association meetings, Kevin chaired a National Association of Forensic Economics (NAFE) session on publishing in the field of forensic economics.
