Secure E-Signature + File Sharing = Real Savings For Your Firm

How many documents do you send for signature to clients each year? If your law firm has a large client list, you know that the process of obtaining signatures is often cumbersome and frustrating.

Whether you are sending contracts, engagement letters, policy applications or any other document that requires a client signature, you probably spend significant time and money packaging and sending documents, keeping track of recipient lists, matching records upon return and following up with anyone who does not return a document. In some cases, clients may even return documents without signing every field, requiring you to send documents back and forth multiple times. It’s a laborintensive approach to what should — and can — be a simple process.

“ShareFile helps us easily and securely send important documents and video material to our lawyers, experts and clients wherever they are.”

-Mike Doyle, Doyle Raizner, LLP

There is an easier way!

An e-signature solution reduces the time it takes to get a signature — no mailing, printing or scanning needed. Signing documents electronically lets you bypass the problems of manually sending documents for signature. Recipients are more likely to respond quickly because signing is easy and takes very little time to complete.

Additionally, when properly executed, e-signatures are legally binding and carry the same validity and enforceability of penand- paper documents.

E-signature systems let you get a signature faster, cheaper and easier than faxing or mailing. Leave less room for error by keeping client files more organized. Save on printing, postage and labor costs and free up time to better serve your clients.

Send a document for signature.

When you activate RightSignature with ShareFile, you can select any document (RightSignature supports DOC, DOCX and PDF documents and more) from ShareFile to “Get Signature,” and the file will open in the RightSignature interface. Specify signers and signature fields, type subject and message, and send from RightSignature.

Your recipient can access and sign the document online from any web browser, mobile device or tablet. Signers don’t need a ShareFile account to sign, just an email address and a web browser. And because the signature pad enables a realistic, wet-looking signature, the final document will look the same as if it was signed with pen and paper.

Once the document is signed, you and the recipient receive an email confirmation, and the document is automatically saved back to your ShareFile account with “-signed.pdf” added to the file name.
