International Discovery

Treaties and federal statutes provide certain foreign parties with a right to seek discovery in the United States. This can be an extremely powerful tool for gathering sensitive and potentially damaging information for companies and individuals even when such discovery is not available in the foreign jurisdiction. We have succeeded in obtaining this international discovery and depositions on behalf of the foreign parties and also successfully challenged international discovery petitions on behalf of our American companies resisting. When it is necessary to gather evidence in foreign jurisdictions, we have obtained evidence from abroad through The Hague Convention and other international discovery methods. When effectively utilized, this evidence can have a profound impact on the outcome of the case.
