Electronic Signatures: Practice Points [Checklist]

Lawyers frequently find themselves having to arrange for clients and other parties to sign documents electronically. This is usually because the signatory is at a remote location; the signatory wants an agent or assistant to place his or her signature; there are a large number of documents to be signed at once; or the signatory simply prefers to use electronic signatures as part of their office workflow.
