5 Steps You Need To Know Before Scheduling a Deposition in Ireland (Infographic)

This warm and welcoming island is a perfect destination for a US deposition. There are no restrictions as long as your witness is willing to appear. View or download our super helpful five step guide on everything you need to know before planning your deposition in Ireland.

Deposition Restrictions. The good news — taking U.S. depositions in Ireland is permissible. If your witness is willing to appear voluntarily at his or her deposition, you can simply conduct the depo by 1) noticing the deponent in advance, and then 2) allowing the court reporter to administer the oath by stipulation of counsel for all parties.

Depo Venue. Depositions in Ireland can take place at the venue of your choosing, whether that be a hotel room, law firm office, conference room, or videoconferencing facility.

Plan Early. Give yourself about 4 weeks to plan. The further you plan ahead, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to locate and book the right deposition team for your deposition.

Options: Should the attorney attend the depo in-person or remotely? Thanks to better internet connectivity worldwide and the rise of web-based video conferencing programs, many new options have arisen for conducting international depositions. Although it is always best (and highly recommended) to have all parties present with the witness for the most reliable and clearest record, there are several different cost effective approaches that can also be taken. We highly recommend reading our blog article, International Depositions: What Are Your Options to see which choice best fits your firm.

Booking Locally-based Deposition Court Reporters in Ireland. The final key for a successful deposition in Ireland is finding the perfect deposition services for your firm. A locally-based court reporter or depo team means little to no travel costs for your clients. Plus, they can provide an expertise that can’t be duplicated. It’s a win-win situation!
