Hybrid Hearings, powered by Opus 2

Hybrid hearings combine elements of virtual hearings and in-person hearings and are increasingly being adopted as legal teams consider how to make as close a return as possible to face-to-face proceedings.

How can Opus 2 power your hybrid hearings?

Hybrid hearings can assume a number of different formats, using elements of both virtual and in-person hearings. Broadly speaking, a hybrid hearing is one where some participants may be at the venue of the hearing, with some joining remotely. The remote participants may be joining individually or in small groups. There may not be a primary or central venue to the hearing, but some participants will join as groups from a ‘hub’. 

Our highly experienced services team will help you plan your hybrid hearing. We will manage and deliver the critical components for your hearing, including transcription, Electronic Presentation of Evidence (EPE), shared electronic bundles and more. We also deliver a range of add-on services including the video conferencing provision, tech packs and remote access to real-time transcription and EPE.
