This weekend, CNBC-TV 18, the leader in India business news, will be covering legal outsourcing. In its new program, Up South, the television network will examine the rise of SDD Global Solutions in Mysore, as well as two other companies in this upcoming city that Infosys chose for its largest facility. The program will report on how and why SDD Global also chose Mysore as the headquarters for its operations, which include offices in New York, London, and Bangalore. SDD Global is reporting a resurgence in its fortunes, with a doubling of client work and an influx of new recruits. This came after emerging successfully from what company sources say was a “flattering but unwelcome” take-over attempt by a large investor. SDD Global’s latest high-profile client is Mohamed Al Fayed, owner of Harrod’s in London and the Hotel Ritz in Paris. Indian attorneys in Mysore have been busy working on legal and factual issues relating to the alleged assassination of Princess Diana and Mr. Al Fayed’s son, Dodi. Whoever said legal work is boring doesn’t know where to work! CNBC’s report on SDD Global, which will be available worldwide, will air in India on Saturday at 11:30am, and again on Sunday at 7pm.
