ABSTRACT
This article reports that General Electric Co. (GE) is forcing its external lawyers to sign an agreement prohibiting firms from litigating against any of the U.S. giant's group companies or affiliates in return for a place on its coveted Great Britain panel. According to several well-placed sources, the blanket waiver is a clause contained in GE's standard terms of engagement and is not up for negotiation, although historically it has not been strictly enforced in Great Britain.
