In this year's lecture Samuel focuses on the challenges that face Indian IT Outsourcing firms when they do business in the UK marketplace, primarily from a legal perspective but also from cultural and business perspectives.
The lecture reviews, from a working lawyer's perspective, the challenges associated with dealing with a common working language but disparate cultures, recognising that Indian culture is changing rapidly through the adoption of technology. Samuel also identifies the legal and contractual challenges that face Indian lawyers working in the UK outsourcing marketplace on a day to day basis.
