Some companies may require a written acceptance letter from you. The acceptance letter indicates you are accepting the position, and reiterates the terms of the offer. Reviewing the terms will help to avoid misunderstandings or confusion about the offer details. Some people like a third-party, such as a family lawyer, to review their offer letters, especially if an offer involves stock options, severance terms, or a formal employee agreement.
