In this podcast David Opie is joined by Charlotte Ponder, Legal Director at CTT Group (formerly Countrywide Tax and Trust Corporation) and Chris Jones, Managing Director and ICON-UK to discuss the progress being made on the introduction of electronic signatures in legal services.
Both Charlotte and Chris are members of the Industry Working Group on Electronic Execution of Documents. and contributors to an interim report on the understanding and adoption of e-signatures in legal services.
In the course of the discussion Charlotte and Chris implore practitioners to invest in their own understanding of the “art of the possible” with digital signatures and encourage their adoption where appropriate; aware that regulation needs to catch up to enable us to fully take advantage of the opportunity.
