"Today's GCs have a critical role to play in leading their organizations as a digital change agent," said Davis. "We have a clear opportunity to cast our leadership shadow throughout our organizations to accelerate the pace of business, reduce cost, and enhance compliance – all while delighting our internal clients."

National ESIGN Day was designated by the U.S. Congress on June 30, 2010, following President Clinton signing into law the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (ESIGN) Act on June 30, 2000. The ESIGN Act created a vast opportunity for companies to benefit from the speed, security and convenience of electronic signatures like UpShot Services LLC, a company that specializes in acting as an agent of the Court in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy proceedings. Co-founder Robert Klamser noted: "eSignature naturally resonated with my partner, a former bankruptcy lawyer. In a paper-laden practice within the legal industry, we knew it was vital to digitize the Chapter 11 space by partnering with DocuSign, the global standard in Digital Transaction Management. Our business model is now tailored to the new digital future of claims management – making us more efficient and better able to service our stakeholders."

DocuSign meets all the requirements of the Federal ESIGN Act to give customers assurance that transactions completed on The DocuSign Global Trust Network are safe, secure and legally enforceable – even more so than if they were signed with paper and pen as all completed transactions include a legally binding audit trail. The Federal ESIGN Act covers contract types of all kinds including arbitration, life and auto insurance, securities, and more.

DocuSign's DTM platform offer lawyers and their executive counterparts an easier, faster, more convenient and secure way to transact business. The webinar will explore how GCs can leverage DTM in their business. Topics will include:

  • The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) of 1999 and The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) of 2000
  • General Rule of Validity
  • What is an Electronic Signature?
  • Evidence and Case Law (5 Cases)
  • Regulatory Developments including FRB and CFPB and the meaning of "Provide," One-Offs, Mobile Devices and Mobile Privacy, FTC Updated Dot Com Disclosures, and Accessibility
  • How GCs can serve as digital champions to accelerate the pace of business and enable organizational success via compliant and profitable all digital business practices
