medical imaging, American companies tend to be reticent about sending legal work overseas to outsourcing

firms. Third-party outsourcing companies, like Intellevate and Lexadigm, are secretive about their client

lists, concerned about a backlash from workers or customers inrepparttar U.S. According to Leon Steinberg, one

Intellevate client company was paranoid about its Intellevate agreements becoming public because it was

fearful of how its labor unions would feel aboutrepparttar 141926 use of Indian labor. "In our contract with them, it says

we will not divulge that they are a client without their advanced written consent," Steinberg explained. "The

next sentence says we will not seek their advanced written consent."

Even Microsoft, which has been widely reported to be using Intellevate for patent research, declined to

discussrepparttar 141927 company beyond confirming that Microsoft is a client and issuing a statement that "[as] a global

company, we are constantly working to improve our ability to serve our customers worldwide inrepparttar 141928 most cost

effective, efficient manner."

Given this reluctance to discuss outsourcing, convincing a potential client to accept even a free sample can

take months of lobbying. Intellevate offers to prepare at no fee a mock patent application for firms it

courts, but this offer is often declined. Steinberg has been forced to resort to more aggressive tactics.

Eighteen months after applications are filed withrepparttar 141929 U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, they become public

record. Steinberg recently had Intellevate's Indian staff comb through a company's latest USPTO applications

for errors. When they found some, one of them serious, Steinberg contactedrepparttar 141930 large D.C. law firm that had

filedrepparttar 141931 application. He flashed a devious smile recounting a partner's response to his unsolicited help:

"This is outrageous." Ifrepparttar 141932 mistake doesn't convincerepparttar 141933 D.C. firm to work with Intellevate, Steinberg said,

"there's nothing stopping us from sending it torepparttar 141934 corporation."

AT LEXADIGM, ATTORNEYS' SALARIES range from $6,000 to $36,000. The employees, whose résumés lead off with LLMs

from top U.S. law schools and are studded with internships atrepparttar 141935 World Trade Organization in Geneva and

apprenticeships atrepparttar 141936 Indian Supreme Court, would earn six-figure salaries at elite U.S. law firms. Butrepparttar 141937

education visas most of these young attorneys used to study inrepparttar 141938 United States allow for only one year of

work after graduation, so most have to return to India to find jobs.

The disparity in salaries makes this seem like a more heroic sacrifice than it is. The lifestyle a Lexadigm or

Intellevate salary buys is in many ways more lavish than an American attorney's. (And more than an Indian

attorney's—Intellevate employees make 40 percent more than new associates at corporate law firms in India;

many left such jobs to come to Intellevate.) Savinda Gupta is a 2004 graduate of Delhi University's law school

who works below her education level as a paralegal at Intellevate's office. Gupta, who wore a drab khaki

sweater highlighted by a bright pink shawl, called a dupatta, thrown across her shoulders, employs three

part-time servants, one of whom washes her two cars daily. "Everybody does it," she said. "Delhi is very

anti-sweatshop movement, legal outsourcing, whispered about now, is likely to become a hotly debated topic in

American law soon. For now, third-party outsourcers like Intellevate and Lexadigm remain popular mostly with

corporate legal departments, which use outsourcing to keep costs down. Large law firms have been slower to

send work to overseas outsourcers.

But what if they were to come around? Thomas Morgan,repparttar 141942 professional responsibility expert, says bar

association ethics rules require law firms to pass on to clients cost savings from outsourcing. In theory, at

least, it would take only one big firm looking for a competitive advantage to start a bidding war that could

changerepparttar 141943 cost of buying legal advice inrepparttar 141944 U.S.

Inrepparttar 141945 meantime, outsourcing firms continue to find resourceful ways to improve their product. English isrepparttar 141946

language of business in India, but not of common parlance; written Indian English has retained much of its

Raj-era formality. Not far fromrepparttar 141947 offices of a legal outsourcing company in Mumbai called Mindcrest, a sign

over a busy intersection reads, "Jaywalking Is Injurious to Your Health." To help their employees learn to

write simple, direct, American sentences,repparttar 141948 company has begun giving all its new hires Hemingway's The Old

Man andrepparttar 141949 Sea. A strategy an expatriate could appreciate.
