Example from https://www.lawinsider.com/clause/authority-to-sign
Authority to Sign. Each of the persons signing below on behalf of any party hereby represents and warrants that s/he or it is signing with full and complete authority to bind the party on whose behalf of whom s/he or it is signing, to each and every term of this Agreement.
I once heard the point is that if the person signing doesn't have the authority to bind the company, then you can sue them instead of suing the company, which is presumably easier. Is this correct?
Wouldn't such a clause be desirable in any contract where someone is signing on behalf of a company?
