These days, with transnational litigation and international travel more common than they used to be, attorneys often set off for far-away locations to take depositions, sometimes for long stretches at a time. This adds a layer of important details and deadlines for paralegals to juggle, such as confirming and taking care of visa requirements and other travel-related bits and pieces to international depositions. Reserving the services of a seasoned, well-traveled court reporter, with experience reporting for such distinguished bodies as the U.N., and covering depositions and trials in regions of Africa, Asia, and others, is a major asset.
Planet Depos has been retained to provide court reporting services for a number of depositions in various regions of the globe, including exotic countries like South Africa. During the Golden Age of Hollywood, MGM Studios boasted of having “more stars than the heavens.” In the world of court reporting, Planet Depos can make that very same claim! Our reporter’s experience in covering intricate, sensitive cases worldwide is a plus for many reasons. First, she knows the drill, knows what to expect (including the unexpected), and has tried-and-true methods of surmounting issues which may arise. Second, she is a seasoned traveler, undaunted by the prospect of a 23-hour flight or cringe-worthy visa requirements. She can not only “roll with the punches” of draining international travel, she can probably provide you with some sage advice! Third, all of her experience covering high-profile cases speaks for itself. You don’t get to be the repeat reporter for the U.N., covering very long days, if you aren’t the consummate professional providing accurate, timely transcripts, clean realtime, and are accustomed to the various accents that accompany international cases.
These stars of court reporting will offer additional assistance throughout the proceedings as needed, whether it be printing exhibits or taking care of any schedule changes with the hotel or conference room center booked for your depositions. Any test calls that are needed will be handled as quickly as possible to select the appropriate location with more than adequate internet speed. And, with reporters (and videographers) who are happy to travel anywhere, from Finland to Rwanda, Honduras to Japan, as well as reporters living throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia, you can expect coverage with no fuss, and in some cases, no or reduced travel fees.
The benefits of working with such reporting professionals extend beyond the actual proceedings and related details. Ask for hotel recommendations. Ask for the best local dishes to sample, safety tips, technical/travel questions about your electronics. True, some of this information is available online, but the voice of experience is a beautiful sound when it saves you time, money and aggravation with little-known helpful tips (the kind you won’t necessarily find online). And these reporting vets will be more than happy to share!
