Webinar:  In-House Counsel Corporate Masterclass - Virtual Completions & E-Signatures

Event Date: 25 June 2020

We hosted our In-House Counsel Corporate Masterclass webinar discussing Virtual Completions & E-Signatures on Thursday 25 June 2020. 

Virtual completions in accordance with the Mercury principles have been common for many years. The COVID-19 pandemic has led many to look again at the more routine use of virtual completions and electronic signatures as part of transaction completions and day to day contract executions.

During this webinar, our speakers considered steps to take when closing a transaction virtually and gave practical advice when using e-signatures. We discussed some common issues and work-arounds that have arisen in recent months and can be used in the future. We were joined by guest speaker, Anne Chitan, from leading London firm, CMS, who discussed learnings from virtual completions and e-signatures in the UK. 

Speakers:

David O'Donnell, Partner & Head of Corporate, Mason Hayes & Curran LLP

Edel Hartog, Commercial Partner, Mason Hayes & Curran LLP

Anne Chitan, Partner & Global Co-Head of Communications, TMC, CMS London
