Back in April 2020 as the pandemic set in, companies, organisations and even Courts had the challenge of transferring all of their activities online. Virtual Approval was instructed do provide the management, admin and technical production of the pioneering first ever fully remote hearing.
We carefully configured the appropriate security settings and protocol to protect from unwanted interruptions, managed admissions, displayed evidence, controlled breakout rooms and more.
This was a high profile commercial law case, scheduled for 9 days with high sums contested and was attended not only by Judge, claimant, defendant, witnesses and council; but also by pre-screened national press and stakeholders.
The case was a ground-breaking success in many ways and set an example to solicitors, regional Courts and chambers. Our team involved in this first case were proud to receive an Award for Innovation in Legal Technology. As a result we have acted as technical production suppliers for many online and hybrid Court hearings, arbitrations and mediations since.
