Law.com: Global litigation, digital workflows & electronic proceedings
Welcome to the new world of digital litigation, which is rapidly emerging in the context of an increasingly globalized world — a world where it is now commonplace for domestic law firms to extend their reach across international borders, engage in legal matters that span multiple jurisdictions, and collaborate with overseas colleagues and foreign counsel on a regular basis.
Last year in Miami, a multi-day international arbitration involving two very large global law firms took place in a “pop-up” high-tech hearing room equipped with state-of-the-art evidence presentation and trial bundle software. Paperless trial technology was integrated with real-time interpretation services in Spanish, English and French to accommodate multinational participants and witnesses. Some case team members participated onsite, while others did so remotely from their respective branches in the U.S., the UK and continental Europe.
