Acumen HR Solicitors Scheme

Every business needs employment law and HR support, but not every business has the luxury to have such support in-house.

Get in touch

The Acumen HR Solicitor Scheme means that you can for as little as £700 (+VAT) pcm! You will have your own HR Solicitor and we will be there for all your employment and HR needs (see list below).

How does it work?

For a fixed monthly fee, you get your own in-house ACUMEN HR Solicitor Scheme for a fixed number of hours per year. If you are faced with circumstances which mean that you go over your fixed hours in one year you’ll get a discounted hourly rate because you are a member of the Scheme.

As an induction to the scheme we’ll visit your office to meet your team and familiarise ourselves with your business allowing us to understand your business culture, requirements and how we can improve your business performance and reduce your business risk.

HR35 Solicitor Scheme

Your business will be granted 35 hours a year for a payment of £700.00 (+ VAT) a month. Your hourly rate under the HR35 Solicitor Scheme is effectively reduced by 20% to £240.00 (+VAT).

HR70 Solicitor Scheme

Here your business will benefit from 70 hours a year for a payment of £1,200.00 (+ VAT) a month. Under HR70 Solicitor Scheme your hourly rate is reduced by over 30% to just £205.60 (+VAT).

HR100 Solicitor Scheme

If your business is handling a high volume of transactions and it could use a frequent and on-going pair of legal eyes, then this scheme will provide your business with 100 hours a year for a payment of £1,650.00 (+ VAT) a month. The hourly rate under the HR100 Solicitor Scheme comes to £198.00 (+VAT), that’s a 34% reduction.

HR125 Solicitor Scheme

If you could do with an in-house legal support, but not quite enough to incur the high cost of recruitment and high wage pay for an in-house lawyer, then this scheme is for you. Under this Scheme your business will benefit from 125 hours a year, for a payment of £1,995.00 (+ VAT) a month. Joining the HR125 Solicitor Scheme means that the hourly rate paid is just over £191.00 (+VAT), providing you with over 36% discount.

This scheme covers you for everything Employment Law related, including:

  • ongoing support with all your queries;
  • drafting of contracts and policies;
  • training managers to ensure compliance with employment law requirements;

  • regularly advising you on:
