A legal outsourcing career at SmithDehn INDIA involves stepping onto the world stage beyond legal process outsourcing / LPO, helping to design strategies for Fortune 500 and other companies and individuals across the planet. For a law graduate, it means progressing out of the ordinary legal career path and becoming Global Counsel. Because our focus is on high-end, knowledge-based legal KPO services, such as sophisticated legal research, analysis, and drafting, it means rigorous training by top-caliber Western attorneys, which is often better than the training provided by expensive Western law schools. Whether you are an attorney or not, a career at SmithDehn INDIA means working in a friendly, supportive environment, in a state-of-the-art building, with colleagues who are among the best and brightest in the fast-growing field of high-end, knowledge-based legal outsourcing.
Ranked as the top full-service legal outsourcing company in world, according to a 2010 survey of 6,547 clients, SmithDehn INDIA is far beyond the typical LPO (legal process outsourcing) or legal services KPO (knowledge process offshoring) company. Because of the uniquely high-end nature of our work, in many ways (not including price), we are the equivalent of a global law firm. We are also the only legal outsourcing company managed by a U.S. law firm. Managed by SmithDehn LLP, the New York-London-based experts in media and intellectual property law, we chose Mysore, India as an ideal business location that is away from India's congested and increasingly costly major cities, but close to major universities that provide a steady supply of enthusiastic talent. The New York Times recently ranked Mysore as fourth among the "31 Places To Go in 2010." With an influx of Western law firm and corporate clients, we have moved into our own 330-employee building and are in the process of hiring new, high-quality recruits.
We have received substantial funding from SFP Priority Co. Ltd., a member of the SFP Group, a large Asia-based investor. We also have received funding from investors working for Cisco Systems, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, and Barclays Capital. We are approved by the Government of India (STPI) as an IT-Enabled Services company, and we have had the additional support of a large debt facility from State Bank of India, the country's largest and oldest public sector bank.
At our Mysore headquarters, work that is outsourced includes drafting contracts and handling some of the most high-profile media, entertainment, and intellectual property litigations and other matters in the West, for a "who's who" of leading motion picture studios, television companies, retail brands, publishing houses, and manufacturers, as well as processing visas for actors, directors, producers, and other professionals needed by our U.S. clients. Clients outsource to us because we provide professional solutions, by leveraging information technology and a high-quality workforce for clients worldwide. SmithDehn INDIA is solving one of the most pressing problems of today's businesses, namely, the inefficiencies of having legal work done in locations that often are among the most expensive, and the least productive.
We are one of the leaders in a paradigm shift in the world of legal services.
