07/09/16

The Law Society Company Law Committee and the City of London Law Society Company Law and Financial Law Committees (the JWP) has issued an important practice note on the execution of documents using electronic signatures.  As the Note records, as market practice and technology evolve, the use of electronic signatures is becoming increasingly common in a range of commercial transactions, and that trend is expected to continue.

The JWP was advised by Mark Hapgood QC, and he approved the practice note before it was published.  A copy can be accessed on the Law Society website here.
