    The steep rise in U.S. litigation involving foreign parties or overseas conduct has increased the frequency of the need to collect evidence located outside the United States. Antitrust litigation has been at the forefront of this globalizing trend. In cases involving parties or witnesses located outside the United States, the ability to collect successfully evidence in foreign jurisdictions has become imperative.

    Obtaining Discovery Abroad, Third Edition addresses the various methods of collecting evidence located outside the United States. The first two chapters of the book discuss the specific requirements and limitations that U.S. law imposes on the discovery process when the evidence is located abroad. The third and fourth chapters discuss the application of applicable international discovery treaties and conventions to which the United States is a signatory and that may need to be observed, as well as considerations for local law applicable to where the evidence is located. The following sixteen chapters of the book address the relevant law and procedures of Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, South Africa, South Korea, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.
