A Texas Business & Commerce Code statute helps you work with email and work with other attorneys.
Texas has passed its version of the Uniform Electronics Transactions Act (UETA). If parties agree, then they can conduct transactions electronically, which includes using email. Email and other “documents” are referred to in the act as an electronic record, i.e., a record that is either created, generated, sent, communicted, received, or stored by electronic means.
UETA comes into play when parties mutually agree to conduct business using electronic communications. Assume you are Party A and you contract with Party B.
