Electronic Signatures

Electronic signatures save time and paper. But there are legal implications - do you know who is signing? Are they authorised to do so? Is your contract safe? As we move towards a paperless society, it's easy to assume that the person who signs electronically on behalf of a company has the same authority. However, in a recent case, the Court held no.

Copying Contracts

Copying someone else's contracts, terms and conditions, privacy policies and so on is so easy with the help of the internet. But the time you save in doing that could cost you more than it's worth. Besides the fact that you have used another business's T&Cs without acknowledgement (a breach of copyright law), you may have copied ones from another country with laws that will not be upheld here.

Unfair Contracts and What to do About Them

Contracts are the life-blood of any business. Just like the human body, if the blood is out of balance, the body is sick. If you don’t have good contracts in place you can find yourself in circumstances that might strangle your business. Gone are the days when a contract was sealed with a smile and a handshake. For years, supplying or receiving goods and services have been confirmed by a signed contract.
