How is Accordium Legal
Signing electronically is functionally equivialent to doing so on paper. There is nothing magic about the creation of a legal agreement, and typically no special forms are required to become binding. What matters is that both transacting parties recognize each other’s intent to become bound, and state that intention explicitly. Whether by verbal agreement, paper, or clicking a button, contract law does not differentiate between methods of establishing intent.
So long as intent is clearly recorded and understood, and the identity of the parties known, an electronic system is at least the same (and in most cases superior) to pen and paper.
