Depositions in Switzerland – International Deposition Tips

We’re coming at you with another segment of our International Deposition Tips. In this episode Ian Hardy, CEO and President of Optima Juris, highlights the legalities of setting up an international deposition or arbitration in Switzerland.

Takeaway Tips

  • Taking voluntary depositions in Switzerland is subject to prior authorization by the Federal Department of Justice, according to the U.S. Department of State. But don’t worry, Optima Juris has been conducting depositions and arbitrations in Switzerland for over 17 years and we are here to help find the best solutions for your firm.
  • Optima Juris has local court reporters, legal videographer, and interpreters in Switzerland, that means no, to very low travel costs for you and your client.
  • 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 Swiss-based professional for your deposition.
