Our vast experience with conducting remote depositions for both domestic and international proceedings allowed us to instantly pivot and continue servicing our clients through these unprecedented times.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) April 08, 2020
Planet Depos, LLC, a global court reporting company providing best-in-class court reporting and litigation technology services, announces an unprecedented increase in remote depositions as a result of the Covid-19 health crisis. A swift mobilization of the company’s technology group at the onset of the crisis enabled its clients to transition quickly and seamlessly to remote depositions.
“Having advance notice from our court reporting business in Asia, which was first impacted by the virus in February, helped us position Planet Depos’ remote infrastructure prior to the virus reaching our shores,” said Joseph DiMonte, Founder and Managing Partner. “We have seen the percentage of remote depositions overtake in-person proceedings almost overnight.” The Asia market has begun to return to normal due to the early and rapid responses of nations such as Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and Singapore.
“Our clients needed an immediate solution for taking depositions remotely in a secure manner,” said Billy DiMonte, Planet Depos Founder and Managing Partner. “Our vast experience with conducting remote depositions for both domestic and international proceedings allowed us to instantly pivot and continue servicing our clients through these unprecedented times.”
As attorneys shifted to home-based offices, Planet Depos began hosting webinars focused on remote depositions for law firms and bar associations across the nation. The company will continue hosting “A Look at Remote Deposition Capabilities,” a free 30-minute webinar, throughout the duration of the crisis. Click here for more information.
To ensure a smooth proceeding, Planet Depos Technicians oversee from start to finish the secure/encrypted and password-protected remote deposition platform and, upon request, can also manage and display exhibits. Recordings are made of all proceedings and are available to all parties.
While preparing its clients for remote depositions, the technology team at Planet Depos has simultaneously delivered remote deposition webinars to its team of court reporters across the nation and around the world. “Our court reporters are well trained in the nuances of remote depositions and stand ready to service our clients from their home offices,” commented Kathy DiLorenzo, Director of Court Reporting.
With the impact of COVID-19 disrupting virtually every person and business around the globe, Planet Depos’ robust IT infrastructure enables it to continue to serve its clients’ needs in a technologically secure environment, from any location that has cell phone or internet access.
