Legal Research & Drafting

Unlike other LPO (legal process outsourcing) companies, our focus is on the provision of high-end, high-quality, knowledge-based legal outsourcing services, such as legal research and the drafting of complaints, motions, legal briefs and memoranda, discovery documents, appeals, summaries of witness statements, and any other litigation papers, as well as the creation of print, videotape, and animation exhibits for trial. Our legal associates are top law graduates and experienced legal advocates and/or former law professors in India, who in turn are trained and supervised by accomplished U.S. and/or U.K. attorneys or solicitors who have been practicing at the top of their respective fields.

In accordance with the codes of professional conduct and ethics governing the practice of law in the United States and the United Kingdom, the expert lawyers of SmithDehn INDIA who are not licensed in the U.S. or the U.K. do not provide U.S. or U.K. legal advice. Instead, we provide streamlined, creative, and result-oriented litigation support, performing a multitude of research, drafting and other tasks that can be done in India and supervised by licensed attorneys, faster and at a fraction of the cost.
