Agreement Signed One Party
In addition, in Michigan, it is legal to be in front of a contract. In other words, you can expect your contract to be concluded “from” or “effective” a date before the date of signature of the contract. If this is the case, the contract takes effect retroactively “ab” or “effective” to that earlier date. In this situation, it is clear (at least from the contract) that John`s intention is not to be bound by a contract until his client has signed it. Therefore, if it begins its work before recovering the signed contract, there is a serious risk that there will be no legally binding treaty between them. If his client then refused to pay, he would have a hard time imposing it.
