Virginia Lawyer Publishes Article on Practical Guidance for Virtual Depositions Under Pandemic Conditions

Virginia Lawyer recently published an article on “Practical Guidance for Virtual Depositions Under Pandemic Conditions” by Smith Pachter McWhorter government contracts and construction litigation attorney Michael T. Gwinn. The article provides practical advice on conducting virtual depositions, including special considerations for virtual depositions, steps in preparing for a virtual deposition, and unique challenges and contingency plans to mitigate technical mishaps and issues that may arise. Adapting this guide to virtual depositions can be a useful tool in managing time and cost of discovery well after the pandemic.
