This seminar will take attendees through the law and practice relating to applications for disclosure and deposition against companies and individuals in England and Wales in aid of proceedings overseas.

This interactive workshop session will cover when applications of this sort are appropriate and what must be shown if the application is to succeed. It will also look in practical terms at how the applications are made and what common pitfalls should be avoided. It will also cover what happens next after an order is made.
