    The transmission of this and all other documents by email and fax, even if signed in counterparts, shall be legally binding and fully enforceable by mutual consent of the parties.

    I don't get it at all ["even if signed in counterparts"]. how could a contract be legally binding if just one party would sign it? can you please help me? or is it just "un duplicata" a copy

    Contract signed in counterparts is still signed by all the parties. Each party essentially signs a different copy of the contract, yet each copy is an original. It is very much possible as long as the reference to the other document is made in the contract.
