SDD Global Press Release

SDD Global Solutions Brings Hollywood to India

High-End LPO Does Legal Work for Blockbuster Films in its Mysore Headquarters

Bangalore, June 14, 2007: SDD Global Solutions, the only legal process outsourcing company in India managed by a U.S. law firm, today announced that it is now performing, and will continue to perform, high-end legal work for major Hollywood movie studios and television companies, on everything from blockbusters by 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, and Universal Pictures, to hit television shows by HBO. SDD Global Solutions is working on major Hollywood movies and television programming from its headquarters in Mysore, supported by its rapidly growing staff of Indian lawyers.

The Chairman of SDD Global Solutions Pvt Ltd, Mr Russell Smith, also dubbed as "The Maharaja of Media" by The American Lawyer, said, “Nearly all of the legal work for ‘Borat,’ the most financially successful comedy film of all time, was done from Mysore. Similarly the award-winning film, ‘Death of a President’, featuring the fictional assassination of U.S. President Bush, could not have been released, without the rapid, expert, and low-cost legal assistance that SDD Global provided.”

He further added, “SDD Global Solutions is helping get insurance for Al Pacino’s next film, and doing the legal groundwork for a new reality TV series about rookie cops. There is business coming in to SDD Global where we will be doing work on a major new motion picture from Universal Pictures. Another large Hollywood studio has asked us to handle thousands of U.S. immigration visas for its actors and directors. Our clients are happy to have their legal work done in the most cost-effective and efficient location in the world right now, which is our office in Mysore, India.”

Most recently, the attorneys at SDD Global have been doing legal research to help defend a highly-acclaimed HBO television series, now facing a court case in Los Angeles. The Company’s employees also help prepare legal roadmaps to help film and television producers avoid trouble and obtain needed insurance. With the influx of clients, SDD Global last month moved to its own 330-employee building in Mysore and is looking to hire over 200 recruits within the next 12 months.
