Your law firm can trust DocuSign’s electronic signature platform
As a member of the legal industry, you probably have some doubts about if electronic signatures are legally binding. The answer is yes; electronic signatures are valid and legally binding around the world.
The United State passed two acts establishing the legality of electronic signatures: the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN, 2000) and the Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (UETA, 1999). Both the ESIGN and UETA say that electronic signatures hold the same validity and legal effect as signatures on paper documents. A document or signature may not be denied legal effect, validity or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form.
