London, August 23, 2010 - LexisNexis UK (, a leading provider of content-enabled workflow solutions, and Business Integrity, a leading provider of document assembly solutions, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver complete document assembly services. Business Integrity's ContractExpress(TM) document automation technology is to be used to power LexisNexis online services.
