From real estate purchases to large client deals, e-signatures finalize some of businesses’ most important, highly regulated transactions. So if there’s ever any legal question over a transaction, the relevant e-signatures must hold proof of their legal validity in the courtroom.

John Harris, our senior vice president Legal e-signaturesof product management, recently provided a play-by-play to Legaltech News on how to ensure your legally binding e-signatures will remain defensible amid scrutiny from judges and opposing counsel.

He notes while legal evidence of some e-signatures’ validity rests with the e-signature vendor, that’s not the case with Independent E-Signatures™. 

“This is not a problem with an independent e-signature because the embedded evidence can be easily accessed ­anytime, even without an Internet connection, regardless of the vendor’s status or the long-term reliability of its servers. In the same way wet ink becomes inseparable from the fibers of a paper document, so is the independent e-signature evidence linked to a digital document,” John said in his article.
