Thanks to COVID-19, many courts and government agencies are using computer-based videoconferencing technology to conduct conferences, motion hearings, and even trials online. What are the do’s and don’ts for litigating effectively in virtual proceedings, especially in complex antitrust cases involving multiple parties and far-flung witnesses? Lisa Wood, and antitrust practitioner, Co-Chair of the Litigation Department of Foley Hoag LLP, and author of the long-running Notes from the Field column featured in Antitrust Magazine, joins Alicia Downey and John Roberti to discuss what she learned about best practice for virtual litigation from interviews with lawyers and judges across the country as well as the lessons she has learned from her own practice. Listen to this episode to hear about which virtual litigation proceedings are poised to become a permanent feature of complex civil suits and proceedings before the agencies.
