UnitedLex, an Overland Park, Kansas-based enterprise legal services company, has expanded its relationship with General Electric in a move that could rattle GE’s outside law firms, its in-house lawyers and its legal technology partners alike.

Under a new multiyear, exclusive contract, UnitedLex will deploy its technology to serve GE in 180 countries and across several areas, beginning with legal operations, litigation, investigations, e-discovery, forensics and document review. In those areas, UnitedLex will reduce GE’s legal spend by 30 percent, the companies said.
