Clark Hill Attorney John L. Hines Jr. will co-present “Digital Transactions: The Global Legal Framework for E-Signatures and Records” Sponsored by the American Bar Association

Oct 12, 2016

CHICAGO, IL – Clark Hill attorney John L. Hines, Jr. and Ken Moyle, Managing Director of K6 Partners LLC, are presenting a webinar entitled “Digital Transactions: The Global Legal Framework for E-Signatures and Records,” sponsored by the American Bar Association’s Center for Professional Development Law Practice Division on October 12, 2016.

After decades of empty promises about "going paperless," businesses are finally crossing the threshold of what we now call "digital transformation." Paper-and-ink-based processes are not just being automated; they are being uprooted and redesigned by a new generation of executives who embrace technology as a necessary survival tool. How has the law kept up with these rapid changes? How can legal practitioners help their clients mitigate risks and realize the benefits of going digital? The speakers lay down a firm foundation of legal principles and precedents to help you navigate the statutory, regulatory and practical elements of e-signature regimes, both in the US and internationally.

Join Ken Moyle (former Chief Legal Officer of DocuSign, Inc.) and John Hines as they discuss:

  • The key sources of law that influence 85% of worldwide e-signature statutes
  • How to reconcile contradictions between state, federal and international laws and regulations
  • Some Rules of thumb for advising on Browse-wrap and shrink wrap contracts
  • Special consideration for consumer transactions

Hines is a member of Clark Hill’s Intellectual Property Practice Group. He concentrates his practice in the areas of intellectual property, technology licensing, cloud computing, technology procurement and outsourcing, electronic commerce and information management. He regularly counsels clients on technology and computer-driven liability in matters involving unfair competition, copyright infringement, privacy and online speech and defamation (as well as matters involving the U.S. Communications Decency Act).
