Remarks by Lisa Richman
Our second panel this morning has two experts, one academic, and one attorney to present to you some perspectives on damages claims.
The Chair for this session is Professor Dr. Irmgard Marboe, from the University of Vienna. She has had an interest in damages since perhaps before her post-doctoral thesis. Her post-doctoral thesis was on damages in the area of international arbitration and international law, and I understand that a version of it has been published in the English language, as well. Among other things, Professor Marboe is one of the editors at TDM.
Immediately sitting next to her is Dr. Leonardo Giacchino. He is a partner at Solutions Economics, LLC, just outside of Washington, D.C. Over the course of twenty years, he has worked on projects—many projects, over one-hundred projects in over thirty countries—that have addressed economic and regulatory issues for both U.S. and international businesses, investors, governments, and organizations. He has extensive experience both in providing written expert testimony and also oral testimony. He has a Ph.D. and M.A. in economics from Duke University, where he’s also acted as a professor, and he has a B.A. in economics from the Universidad Católica, Argentina.
