Realtime court reporters provide more than just an accurate transcript of your deposition.  With use of the latest in technology, they provide an immediate, verbatim record of the testimony which you and your team can view during a deposition, arbitration, or other proceeding.  Holders of the Certified Realtime Reporter and/or Realtime Systems Administrator credentials from the National Court Reporters Association, these highly skilled realtime reporters deliver this valuable service at a remarkable accuracy rate.  Realtime translation also enables your court reporter to provide you with instant rough drafts.  With quick access to the rough drafts, you and your team can efficiently prepare for any follow-up to the day’s testimony.  Additionally, the realtime feed can be streamed to offsite team members, aiding them in better assisting on your case, even if they aren’t present for the deposition.  Should you require a laptop or iPad to view the realtime feed, your court reporter will provide one for you.  Taking a deposition abroad or involved in an international arbitration?  Streaming realtime to your client or support staff back in the States also greatly reduces travel costs and increases efficiency.

Reporters experienced in international depositions make scheduling your international depositions easier all around.  They are seasoned travelers and consummate professionals who are happy to assist with logistical details.  Need exhibits printed last minute?  Your court reporting agency can handle the logistics for you and deliver the exhibits to your hotel, law office, or other deposition location.  A great option to avoid this issue altogether: digital exhibits!  Going paperless will reduce shipping/travel costs, ease organization of your exhibits, and allow you to highlight your own copies.

Your on-the-ground reporter can help with smaller details as well.  Not sure where to get a good taste of local cuisine?  Ask your court reporter!  They can provide recommendations, as well as those spots to avoid!  Tap into their experience and knowledge to make your time abroad as pleasant as possible.  Your court reporter is also knowledgeable regarding voltages in other countries and accordingly prepared (and may even have a spare adaptor should you need one).

Scheduling with a court reporting firm with highly skilled reporters and legal videographers living on the ground ensures a job well done and logistical aid as needed for international depositions.  For example, if you have a deposition in Seoul, Korea, doesn’t it make sense to schedule with a firm with a reporter and videographer living right in Seoul?
