Guest: Shawn Burton, General Counsel, GE Aviation
Today I am joined on the show by Shawn Burton. Shawn is General Counsel of Business & General Aviation and Integrated Systems at GE.
Shawn was connected to me via a former AOP guest Nick Seiersen and has recently published an article in Harvard Business Review on the virtues of plain language contracting.
While we did discuss plain language contracting, and the change and disruption underway in the legal profession – which I thought was a great way to be able to better understand and empathize with our peers in Legal – the main focus of our conversation was a home-grown platform that GE Aviation has built that allows them to be for more strategic in their contract negotiations by assigning a monetary value to each clause they negotiate.
