Acorn Lawyers Acquire Verekers Lawyers

The directors of Acorn Lawyers are delighted to announce Acorn Lawyers’ acquisition of a boutique law firm, Verekers Wollongong Lawyers (Verekers) on Thursday, 23 December 2016. 

Verekers have provided expert legal advice to private and commercial clients in the South Coast of NSW area for over 40 years. As accredited members of the Law Society of NSW, both senior lawyers of Verekers, Peter Williamson and Anne Mowbray have provided specialist legal services in Family Law for over 30 years. 

“We are excited to welcome Peter Williamson, Anne Mowbray and their team to Acorn Lawyers. They have done an excellent job at building Verekers as a very strong family law oriented law firm. They bring a wealth of knowledge to Acorn Lawyers”, said Acorn Lawyers’ managing director, Ash Agarwal. “Acorn Lawyers have been providing expert and specialist legal services in a variety of areas except family law. Acquisition of Verekers Lawyers now enables Acorn Lawyers to provide high quality, specialist family law advice as well”. 

“By joining Acorn Lawyers, a relatively young law firm already known for providing quality legal services in a number of areas including property, commercial, intellectual property, compensation law, estate planning and employment law, we can now offer our clients all of these services while still providing them with the personal, boutique experience that they have come to expect of Verekers”, said Anne Mowbray, now a director of Acorn Lawyers. 

“We are very excited that Anne and Peter have joined Acorn Lawyers. They both are a great addition to our team”, said Acorn Lawyers’ director James Govan. 

Acquisition of Verekers demonstrates Acorn Lawyers’ commitment to provide full suite of integrated legal services to their clients responding suitably to the opportunities and challenges faced by them from time to time.
