Do not add any power of attorney or other evidence. It is unusual to attach evidence of each party`s ability to represent the Contracting Party in normal operations. In addition, it appears that both parties rely on the correct conclusion of the agreement by the other party. For large corporate transactions (involving a law firm), contract files often contain a final chapter that gathers copies of all company powers and decisions. One of the solutions was the legal recognition of “digital signatures”. The majority of states have passed laws allowing digital signatures in domestic transactions. In 2000, President Bill Clinton signed the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, Pub. L. No. 106-229, 114 Stat.

464, also known as the E-Sign Act, which essentially validates electronic contracts in intergovernmental and foreign exchanges. The law does not apply to certain types of documents, including wills, divorce notices, and documents related to court proceedings. An original signed copy of a legal document is always an acceptable equivalent. In some cases, the signature can be signed in the presence of a notary or verified by an identity document. The computer and telecommunications have changed the way work is done and exchanged. Both businesses and the legal system have begun to explore the possibilities of using the Internet and other forms of electronic communications to carry out work. However, court systems cannot allow the electronic filing of legal documents unless the documents have been authenticated as originating from the sender. Similarly, companies will not enter into contracts via the Internet or by e-mail, unless they can confirm that the other party has actually concluded the agreement. Computers and digital scanners can reproduce handwritten signatures, but they are vulnerable to counterfeiting.

If you sign a private contract between two parties, you can agree on acceptable types of signatures. Present this agreement in writing so that you can bring it to justice if necessary. If your contract or agreement is to be registered with a court, you will likely need to have documents signed in the original as equivalents.. . . .
