Visualizing Mind-Boggling Numbers

Summary:

Our clients regularly argue damages that range from the millions to the billions of dollars. Their collective fear is that the jury will literally have no concept about what these amounts mean. This fear is compounded when their legal fees are involved. In one recent case, our client considered any portion under $25 million in dispute (in a $1.9 billion matter) as not worth spending attorney time over—yet they questioned whether a $3,000 color printing bill was excessive. It’s all relative. By analogizing statistical comparisons, the jury will get a better idea about the dollars involved in your case—even if they don’t add up to billions. Legal Arts has developed a proprietary database of thousands of statistical facts to help us visualize mind-boggling numbers. Here are some examples taken from our database.
