Can bills be signed using an electronic signature?

My firm has a computer system which enables us to use electronic signatures. Can bills be signed using an electronic signature?

Yes. Schedule 16, the Legal Services Act 2007 s64(3), which came into force in March 2008 amends s69 of the Solicitors Act 1974 to enable electronic billing.
