Letters of Request

A Letter of Request is a request by a requesting court in one jurisdiction to a receiving court in another jurisdiction, to order the taking of evidence (oral or documentary) of a third party, and transmit that evidence to the requesting court for use in judicial proceedings. Letters of request are also known as "Letters Rogatory" in some common law jurisdictions.

Enyo Law LLP regularly advises companies and individuals on obtaining and also defending Letters of Request in England and Wales, and has particular expertise with the US Courts. We also have expertise in procedures available in various other jurisdictions, such as Switzerland, for taking evidence from a witness abroad for use in proceedings in England and Wales.
