Corporate Profile


"Great to have a local presence in Atlantic Canada with Halifax office and Dr. Strain in New Brunswick. Having Dr. Strain, I can't help but think he will add another dimension to your service in this area. I have found the distance dealing with BEC to be a non-existent problem, and in fact have taken advantage of the time difference on occasion when dealing with the Calgary office."

Cathy Dalziel,
The Haynes Group of Lawyers
"I was most pleased with BEC's recent work on a fatal injury case. The report was very helpful in content and format, and became a pivotal document in settlement discussions. The judge presiding over the settlement conference also commented that he found the report thorough, comprehensive and fair. "

Regarding Cara Brown's book Damages: Estimating Pecuniary Loss

"This looks like a marvelous piece of work. I haven't seen anything comparable to your book. What you have managed to do is integrate the legal/academic treatment into your own work on quantification."

Professor K. Cooper-Stephenson
College of Law
University of Saskatchewan

"This is a broadly based text covering the assessment of damages in such cases as sexual harrassment, wrongful dismissal, wrongful confinement and wrongful death. The author give quidelines as to the cost of raising children, assumptions which matter and tips in industry issues. The reader is told how to work with expert witnesses and how to establish lost earning capacity. The case law covers such differences as exist between the different provinces. The importance of this book to the trial lawyer is that it draws together all facets of damages quantification."
