Why Capsticks?

Capsticks and the Mindful Business Charter

Wellbeing and good mental health is a key part of our strategy. We signed the Mindful Business Charter to support mental health well being and remove unnecessary sources of workplace stress as well as promote better mental health and wellbeing in the legal community.

The pillars of the Charter include:

  • Openness and respect
  • Smart meetings and emails
  • Respecting rest periods
  • Mindful delegation

Learn more about our journey to good mental health and wellbeing here, and more information about the Charter is available on their website: https://www.mindfulbusinesscha... 

We're passionate about sharing our stories and being open



As part of Mental Health Awareness week 2018, some of our people openly shared their experiences and offered advice to others on social media.



During International Women's Day 2018, we shared stories from some of our people on their #pathtolaw to help inspire others and open the conversation on equality and diversity.



During October 2018, we celebrated our diversity through sharing stories and thoughts on why #BHM is important to Capsticks.



To celebrate the NHS 70th Birthday in July 2018, we shared stories of how the NHS has impacted us and why we're grateful for all the great work they do everyday.

Making an impact in our local communities
We believe we have a responsibility to contribute to our community. Often the people our clients are working for are the more vulnerable or less well-off in society. By putting something back we also gain a better understanding of the people who may benefit from our legal work too. We’re also committed to make our practices as environmentally sustainable as possible.
