In yet another example of how offshore legal outsourcing is not just for documents anymore, an expert team of US-law-trained professionals in India are busy doing legal research and drafting of a legal opinion letter to obtain insurance coverage and distribution in connection with the soon-to-be-released investigative documentary film about Sarah Palin. This film is not to be confused with the puff piece recently produced by a Tea Party activist. The Los Angeles Times reports on both films as follows: "Sarah Palin receives what is by all indications a very kind treatment in a new documentary that will premiere in theaters July 15. But a second, far more scathing Palin documentary is being prepared by a more experienced filmmaker. And it looks a lot more likely to stir the pot."
It is the latter film for which legal outsourcing company SDD Global Solutions has been tapped to provide outstanding, speedy, and cost-efficient legal services, in conjunction with its parent media law firm, SmithDehn LLP. Based on the Los Angeles Times report, it seems that offshore legal process outsourcing is having an impact not only in legal circles, but also in the US political world: "[This] movie could become a lightning rod as Palin either runs for president or plays an important part in defining the Republican Party’s 2012 platform."
