Anderson Reporting Offers Remote Depositions for Those Affected by Covid-19
Anderson Reporting offers full service remote depositions for legal teams anywhere in the world. Our court reporting and legal videography team is experienced in all aspects of remote depositions for multiple locations.
Because they usually occur at a legal office or in a conference room, attorneys are having to get creative due to the global health crisis– leading them to turn to remote depositions. They serve the same purpose as an in-person deposition from the safety of one’s home, but attorneys should be aware of key preparation differences when getting their team ready for a remote deposition. Learn about these differences by reading the sections below.
Preparing for Remote Depositions
- Inform everyone involved ahead of time that you wish to conduct a remote deposition.
- Share all necessary documents and exhibits with all parties– including the opposing counsel and court reporter.
- Make sure you have a working webcam and microphone (either built-in or external).
- Create a clean and professional background.
- Limit any background noise as possible.
- Wear professional attire.
- To ensure everyone is heard, speak slowly, clearly, and do not speak over another person.
Preparing for In-Person Depositions
- Book a meeting space ahead of time.
- Reserve any necessary equipment at least 48 hours ahead of time.
- Take into account any travel time and expenses.
- Arrive at the meeting space early.
- Dress for court
