What to Expect

Business entities large and small have been evaluating what services and procedures they can migrate into digital channels for some time, but those decisions have taken on new urgency in the age of social distancing under COVID-19. Many companies are exploring increasing online and mobile customer and partner interaction channels, moving execution of customer agreements to online and mobile channels, and exploring vendors and technology solutions to help achieve these goals.

This session will provide an overview of the U.S. law on electronic signatures and electronic contracting, and address steps to ensure compliance with E-SIGN and legal enforceability of electronic signatures. The presentation will also address unique considerations in certain types of electronic transactions, such as consumer and commercial loan transactions involving real estate and unique issues regarding remote online notarization and electronic recording challenges for these transactions.
