In recent years, more and more people have used electronic signatures (e-signatures) to sign contractors. These antagonisms also describe what defines acceptable delivery. If the contract or deed does not contain a “matching clause,” can the parties still execute the contract or make the deed in return? Both parties were in India and Brazil, which resulted in the creation of two original, signed counter-parties to the treaty. If there is no counter-clause, it does not mean that an agreement with separate counterparties is invalid. A counter-clause may, however, contribute to a party not claiming that the agreement is non-binding, since there is not a single copy signed by all parties or because it did not know that it was entering into a binding agreement by signing a contract that was not signed by other parties. During the process of a transaction, it may be necessary to sign documents in a counter-piece. In the law, a pendant is a double document. The term “counterparty” is used in legal documents to describe a copy of a signed contract, considered legally binding, just like the original. In many cases, multiple copies of a contract document are produced, allowing all parties and signatories to obtain a copy of the contract. In recent decades, technological advances such as printers and photocopiers have produced original documents and identical equivalents. As a result, the need for the counter-clause has almost become obsolete. Hello, I`m Peter and welcome to TransLegal Lesson of the Week. Today we will talk about the equivalent against the opponent.

These are two terms that my colleagues and I regularly see confused by our clients. The first mandate, in return, involves duplications or copies and, as a lawyer or even as a law student, if you are familiar with the contracts, you will see at the end of the contracts the language that this agreement was signed in two identical original equivalents, of which each party received one. It`s kind of a standard final language in a contract. All this means is that each party has received a duplicate or a copy of the original contract. On the other hand, the counterparty refers to a party to a contractual transaction, a transaction, etc. Another way to talk about a quid pro quo is to talk about the opposite side. For example, in the case of a transaction, there is a buyer and a seller, and they would be on opposite sites or counterparties. There is a typical game: “Both counterparties are obliged to sign the contract for it to be valid.” So, as always, if you have questions about the difference between counterparty and consideration, feel free to put a comment in the comments section under the video and I or one of my colleagues will contact you as soon as possible. Thank you. The E-Sign Act 2000 authorizes the use of electronic registrations in consumer contracts as long as the consumer has “agreed yes” to its use. It stipulates that any law subject to a signature obligation can be fulfilled by an electronic signature and that electronic agreements can be presented in evidence before the courts. As noted above, the signed fax or scanned and electronic e-mail document is often accepted as consideration, unless it is expressly excluded in a contract.

But many government agencies like a district writer, for example, do not accept faxes and need an original signed document.
