It would not be uncommon for there to be a lapse of days or even weeks between the time commercial terms are agreed and the date of final contract execution.Even for a simple document such as a Non-Disclosure Agreement (or Confidentiality Agreement), the parties may legitimately want the document to take effect from an earlier date.Yup; that's fraud, and almost any judge in the world - who was NOT from Illinois - would agree.Illinois judges can sometimes be persuaded that the illegal is actually legal, or that…Once someone hands you a signed check, you are legally allowed to deposit that check at anytime.If you do accept post-dated checks, as I do, be wary.

It is of common occurrence in connection with deeds, leases and other contracts that, while they are not in effect at all and have no legal existence until delivered, yet, in respect to the date of delivery, they, in point of commencement, relate back or commence in the future.Lawyers who were trained in commonwealth jurisdictions may have an ingrained concept that backdating a document is generally improper, if not illegal.This is reflected in the Linklaters article Execution of Documents: Five Common Questions Answered, which offers the following advice for in-house lawyers: “(i) contracts may only be backdated, absent fraud, in circumstances where an original form has been lost or where terms have been fully agreed but signatures have been left to a later date and (ii) deeds may never be backdated.” Unfortunately, the article offers scant authority, and a search on Google reveals little else on the subject from the commonwealth world.The commonwealth-trained (and more prudent) approach would be to insert the date only when the last party has signed and to use a date no earler than the date of that last signature.This should cover the majority of cases that come across corporate counsel’s desk.
