The great depositions debate

Last week, Jane Keir attended the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) National 2019 Annual Meeting in Chicago, where she spoke on “Discovery beyond our borders: gathering information in international cases” alongside Sarah M Boulby, Boulby Weinberg LLP from Toronto; Rachael Kelsey, SKO Family Law Specialists, from Edinburgh; Mia Reich-Sjogren from Gothenburg; and Alfonso Sepulveda from Mexico City. In the short time available, they touched upon a whole raft of procedural similarities and differences and ways of trying cases..
