quesHow to withdraw from accepted offer letter

Hi, I have got an offer letter from a software company, which i accepted. This contains the joining date, salary information, and other conditions like leaves, notice period etc once appointment is taken. There are no terms and conditions mentioned in the offer letter, but it includes one line "I accept the offer and join as per the date mentioned in the letter" & signature at the bottom, by scanned copy. Now, i got another better offer from a good company. How do i withdraw from previous offer without legal issues? All communication happened through email.

    We have to review your offer letter before advising you that, if any legal issue is involved or not.

    If there is no clause in the offer letter dealing with penalty, that can be imposed if you don't show up for work on the said joining date then,

    you can easily sign up for the new job without any legal hassle.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
