“I have and continue to use European Deposition services for court reporting and video deposition support in major international litigations, both in England and in Asia. EDS are consummate professionals, they coordinate effectively with US lawyers and the high quality of their video work guarantees effective trial presentations.”

Phillip A. GeraciPartner, Arnold & Porter (NEW YORK)

“European Depositions have covered a large number of depositions for me.  I do a lot of work in the area of international judicial assistance and they are my ‘go to’ outfit for court reporting and videography.  I also recommend them to US law firms when I am asked for someone to provide those services.  They are very flexible in terms of providing what I or the client wants and very well equipped.  I have no hesitation in using them.”

Steven LobleLitigation Director, W Legal Limited

“I have used European Deposition Services exclusively for all of our depositions in Europe since I discovered them many years ago. Simon Rutson and his team of experts have never let us down and always provided excellent quality.”
