My name is Russell Smith. I'm a New York lawyer who loves India. I outsource myself to India for several months every year. I've practiced law, mostly in the media, entertainment, and intellectual property fields, for 28 years. I once worked for the biggest law firm in New York, as well as the smallest, and a couple in between. Because of dissatisfaction with the way law is practiced in the West, and I guess because I'm an incurable idealist, I helped form a different kind of law firm, SmithDehn LLP, and a high-end legal outsourcing company in India, SDD Global Solutions. Our modest aim is to revolutionize the way that legal services are performed and delivered, in the West and beyond. You can email me at rsmith at sddglobal dot com.
