A C S Law - what do the letters stand for?

AC is presumably Andrew Crossley, but what does the "S" in ACS Law stand for?
Is it Shyster?

ACS = A Complete Shambles!
I'm no longer with PN for broadband but with Sky, who are also affected by this. Such luck! Will be checking the leak email torrents tonight just in case.

Quote

from The Register 12 may 2009....

The firm ( Davenport Lyons the original firm sending out letters) confirmed some of its staff had transferred: "Certain members of Davenport Lyons' staff have joined ACS Law to continue working with these clients and we have given permission for ACS Law to use documents originally created by us

(colour changes are mine)
Interesting that ACS law are obtaining money for what they consider to be a criminal act.... (file sharing).... but are not averse to a bit of file sharing themselves ..... Undecided

Re: A C S Law - what do the letters stand for?

Interesting how Davenport and ACS think they can share files around about people they're trying to prosecute... Clearly they couldn't give a rats about the DPA as handing peoples data over without prior consent is illegal under it. If they obtained court orders against ISPs to hand over the details then that is one thing but it doesn't mean that they can then hand over the data to other law firms legally.
Oh.. I forgot... they think they are the law...

I thought that they had pulled all those due to copyright infringement
Note not only is the language vile but if you watch it your IP address will be noted and you will receive a letter from scrooge scrooge crookes and scrooge demanding money with menaces  Grin
