  • In proceedings before the English courts, there are specific rules of civil procedure which can be used to obtain discovery from US-based persons who are not directly involved in the litigation. However, it is often the case that a direct application to the US courts for discovery pursuant to 28 USC ยง 1782 will be quicker and may give rise to a wider scope of disclosure.
