Legal Outsourcing and Trade Secrets -- The Case for India

From the Financial Express of Bombay, an article concerning whether India is ready to take part in a booming potential market for legal outsourcing. Legal outsourcing for law firms and legal departments, according to the article, ranges from "really low-end services like proofreading to high-end value-added services like patent drafting and searches." A recent survey indicates that the legal outsourcing business in India will be a $1 billion industry by 2015.

Before India can really make inroads into this market, though, the author (a lawyer himself) recognizes "an urgent need for legislation to protect trade secrets and for the courts to enforce confidentiality in a big way."
