Opus 2 reporting highlights
Elite global team
Each project is jointly serviced by an American project manager and an overseas Opus 2 employee with experience in the deposition location so that you have around the clock support. Your main contact is based in the United States to ensure better alignment of time zones and languages.
US legal standards delivered abroad
The Opus 2 approach ensures that every service delivered outside of the US is delivered according to US legal practices. Your appointed team is experienced in all aspects of the US deposition process, including swearing in witnesses and the management of exhibits.
Track record for accuracy
While some agencies accept 95% accuracy, Opus 2 only assigns reporters who are trained to write a minimum of 200 words per minute at levels in excess of 98% real-time accuracy -- meaning half as many mistakes as our competitors.
The absolute highest quality deliverables
The entire portfolio of sophisticated Opus 2 services is available for our clients' international depositions, including: Transcription & Digital A/V, Electronic Evidence Integration Services, and Opus 2 Magnum collaborative litigation workspaces in the cloud.
Highly trained professionals on site
We have carefully assembled teams of field-tested reporters, interpreters and videographers living in strategic locations around the globe in order to minimize travel costs and visa issues. These professionals possess 5-20 years of experience taking US depositions.
Vast experience with local requirements
Some countries simply do not permit the practice of depositions in any way. Other countries permit US lawyers to take depositions with few or no restrictions. However, many countries have distinct and challenging restrictions that Opus 2 International can help you navigate.
As a premier court services firm with sophisticated operations worldwide, our US clients can leverage our high-quality, pre-screened deposition resources in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and minimize costly international travel for US-based professionals.
Each deposition is jointly serviced by Opus 2 employees in the US and abroad, leading to seamless coordination of the arrangements and ensuring that services abroad are delivered according to US legal practices.

Competitive rates & cost savings for clients
Apart from the obvious costs of hotel stays and international airfare, there are other unexpected costs to sending American court reporters abroad for depositions. For example, most court reporters will require business class travel and rest days in advance of the deposition. Additionally, sending American court reporters abroad requires the time-intensive coordination of travel visas and work permits. The Opus 2 International model eliminates the high costs associated with sending American court reporters overseas to take depositions. Additionally, our pricing model is transparent and free of hidden costs.
Opus 2 is comprised of an internal technical innovation team and a world-class, international transcription services boutique
