How to Schedule a Deposition in Sweden – Updated 2019

Looking to schedule a deposition in Sweden for a U.S. court case? Want to know what you can and can’t do?  Our amazing Director of Scheduling and CSR, Kimberlee Castro, explains the legalities for how to set up a U.S. deposition in Sweden:

Taking a U.S. deposition in Sweden

  • Depositions in Sweden are allowed, regardless of the nationality of the willing witness.  However, prior permission from the Swedish Foreign Ministry is required.  In order to obtain this permission, contact the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm. (New in 2019)
  • Once permission is granted, depositions in Sweden can take place at the venue of your choosing, whether that be a hotel room, conference room, or videoconferencing facility.
  • Always be sure to plan as far in advance as possible. The further you plan ahead, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to locate and book the right, locally-based professional for your deposition in Sweden.
