Enforceable Contract Signature Requirements


While parties frequently enter into contractual arrangements, they often lack a sufficient understanding as to the signature requirements necessary to create an enforceable agreement. The manner of doing business has changed dramatically over the years, especially with the growth of e-commerce, which has entailed significant changes in the manner that parties sign their contracts. In addition to the traditional manner of signing a contract, whereby parties physically sign a written document, contracts are often entered into today by e-mail or over the Internet.
