Penina Shepherd

Penina is an award winning entrepreneur, the author of the inspirational book The Freedom Revolution and founder of the innovative Law Firm ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW listed by the Financial Times’ Top 50 Groundbreaking & Innovative Law Firms in the UK and Europe.

She set up the firm on her own, from a complete standstill, at the start of the worst economic climate in decades, with a shoestring budget, in an industry that doesn’t welcome change, immediately after giving birth to her third child and when she was diagnosed with a terminal illness. What she did have, however, was an abundance of passion for making a difference in her industry.

Her revolutionary vision, innovation and business model have been remarkably successful. The firm now boasts a great team of commercial lawyers, offices in Brighton & Gatwick and an impressive long line of business clients.
