Acumen Law Corporation

Employees: 21 In Business Since: 2008

Acumen Law Corporation is passionate about access to justice. Its lawyers took part in a project to provide free legal advice at various traffic court locations from June to August 2019. Dozens of people received free traffic court counsel for their tickets.

Acumen Law Corporation also supports young lawyers. Earlier this year, it partnered with the UBC Indigenous Legal Studies Program and Centre for Feminist Legal Studies to put on a women’s suit drive. One of the many barriers women who are seeking entrance into the legal profession face is clothing. So Acumen Law Corporation accepted donations of new and slightly worn suits to give to student lawyers.

When Merritt City Council rejected plans by an LGBT Pride club and an Indigenous youth group to paint a rainbow crosswalk, Acumen Law Corporation offered adjoining parking lots it owns in downtown Merritt as an alternative space.
