We are pleased to announce the publication of a research paper from CBV Institute’s Sponsored Research Initiative. Titled “Prejudgment Interest: The Law, The Theory, and Implications for Practice”, the paper was authored by CBVs Zachary Huxley and Guillaume Lafrance.
In this paper, the authors address prejudgment interest, an issue that is often overlooked by courts, lawyers, and financial experts. The paper highlights common issues and provides recommendations for practice. Relevant aspects of law in Ontario and Quebec are summarized and followed by an exploration of theoretical literature. The authors then delve into an empirical study of certain informative judgments that implicated CBVs as expert witnesses and conclude by discussing implications for current practice.
