Prepare Your Team for a Remote Deposition
Because of the global pandemic, legal professionals across the world have turned to remote work in order to keep everyone safe and healthy while continuing their work. Now, more than ever, our videoconferencing and remote deposition services are vastly important. Before hosting your next remote deposition, read these tips below to ensure it is a success.
Before the Deposition
- Inform everyone involved (including witnesses and opposing counsel) that you would like to conduct a remote deposition.
- Contact your Cleveland court reporting firm to let them know you’d like to set up a remote deposition– they will take care of the rest.
- Email any and all documents and exhibits to all involved parties (including your court reporter).
- Make sure you say on the record that the deposition will be conducted remotely, and that the oath will be administered remotely.
Tips for Technology
- Use a device with a good built-in webcam and microphone, or use an external webcam and microphone.
- Make sure you have a high-speed internet connection.
- If your audio test reveals problems, you can call into the call with the number provided by the videoconferencing platform.
- Close any browsers or programs you have open that you might need to avoid lag in your stream.
Rules to Remember for all Depositions
Many of these rules apply even to in-person depositions, but all are good to keep in mind.
- Allow your court reporter the chance to gather all appearances before beginning.
- Provide a list of keywords and phrases (companies, streets, names, etc) to your court reporter to make sure everything is spelled correctly.
- Do not speak over another person, and speak slowly and clearly.
- Mute your microphone if you are not speaking to avoid excess background noise.
- Before hanging up, give your court reporter the chance to clarify any confusions.
