Sussex-based businesses are being offered legal advice and marketing services in return for equity, courtesy of two organisations based out of the area.

Acumen Business Law works primarily with business owners and entrepreneurs, and describes itself as democratic, modern and approachable law firm. Creative Pod is an award-winning marketing agency – offering a suite of services, ranging from web design and social media to events and PR, to help brands grow.

Acumen and Creative Pod have partnered up to create an innovative investment opportunity for small businesses looking to rebuild and continue to grow, in the months and years following the pandemic.

Penina Shepherd, founder and CEO of Acumen Business Law, comments:

“I’m delighted to partner with Matt for this unique opportunity, and I’m excited to offer my expertise in legal advice.”

“As a business owner myself, I am well aware that the unknown can be daunting and, as a business lawyer, I know that the world of law can be a complex barrier for many businesses.”
