Rachael Heenan will take up the role as Senior Partner from 1 May 2017.

Rachael has played a key part in the expansion of our business already and brings to the role a real drive to grow the business and an outstanding reputation with our clients and in the marketplace.

Rachael Heenan said   “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to be Capsticks’ Senior Partner.  Peter will be a hard act to follow having been Senior Partner for over 10 years during a time which has seen Capsticks go from strength to strength including the opening of three new offices.  We have an ambitious sector development strategy for health, housing and regulatory. During this year we will expand our housing team and offerings to this sector with key housing partners and their teams joining us from Clarke Willmott.  I’m looking forward to working with Alison, Martin and all our teams in the next chapter of Capsticks”.
