A New Sister Firm!


With Spring in the air these are very exciting times for Acumen as March saw the launch of ACUMEN PEOPLE, the brand new sister firm of the award-winning business specialist law firm, ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW with offices in Hove and Gatwick.

ACUMEN PEOPLE specialises in legal matters for private individuals and the first area of expertise in action is Residential Conveyancing.  To mark this special occasion the firm threw a party in true Acumen style, celebrating with new and old friends of the Acumen family at Ten Green Bottles in Jubilee Street, Brighton. 

Spearheading the conveyancing offering of the firm is our expert Harriet Hamilton-Orr. Harriet is passionate about helping people get their dream home and is very excited about building the conveyancing offering of ACUMEN PEOPLE to its full potential.  Harriet said, “I’m so proud to be officially launching the conveyancing department of the firm and am very excited for the future.  We have a passion for people and making their “moving home” experience seamless and successful in every case.  It’s a very exciting prospect and I can’t wait to see the firm grow and develop its tribe.”

On this momentous occasion it was great to see so many join in the celebrations, the drinks and conversations were flowing, a good time had by all. 

Acumen Law Founder, Penina Shepherd, said on the night “This is a very special occasion and I’m so happy to see the launch of our brand new sister firm for the private client in the tenth year of ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW.  I feel proud and privileged to see the Acumen group expand and prosper.”

ACUMEN PEOPLE is a different kind of Law Firm for the private client, following the Acumen ethos of being unique and innovative. Having broken away from the aloof culture that is associated with the legal profession, ACUMEN PEOPLE, like its sister firm ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW is democratically run creating an extraordinary passionate bunch of people keen to make a difference.  Approachable, accessible and unpretentious, the firm prides itself on the personal touch it offers and, of course, a dazzle of zebras for all to enjoy!
