Our distinguished panelists will provide an overview of the methods by which U.S. litigators obtain evidence in foreign jurisdictions for use in U.S. legal proceedings.  In addition, the panelists will offer practice pointers and suggestions for obtaining favorable results in foreign jurisdictions.  The panel will also discuss the mechanisms for and challenges of obtaining evidence for use in U.S. criminal proceedings - both from the prosecutor's and defense counsel's perspective, and will provide insight on the legal and practical challenges of conducting internal investigations in foreign jurisdictions.  Finally, the panel will discuss the related topic of litigating and responding to official requests by foreign litigants for U.S.-based evidence.  This program will be extremely informative and useful for any attorney whose practice involves international litigation and the representation of foreign individuals and entities.
