Corporate law departments are expected to do more than provide basic legal support and protection. They must directly contribute to their company's success, drive competitive advantage, and increase business agility. UnitedLex delivers meaningful and sustainable improvement to how clients conceive of, organize, and provide legal and compliance services by optimizing resources to achieve budget predictability, increased revenue, and significant cost savings.
UnitedLex enables the transformation of your law department from cost center to business partner by reframing expectations for the department’s value contribution, developing and executing operational improvements, and providing quantifiable financial and performance results.
