Why Capsticks?

We recognise that as well as providing a great service, you’re running a business. Your reputation and financial viability are paramount.With so many regulatory and budgetary pressures, we know you need practical and cost-effective legal advice that solve problems.

A poor report from the CQC can adversely affect your reputation and impact on referrals from stakeholders. Our experts move swiftly to dissect the draft report and help you challenge findings - and improve your rating. Also, as regulators hold boards more accountable for delivery, we’ll make sure your governance is in good shape and your registration isn’t at risk.

We offer comprehensive legal advice, to care home operators from a position of strength with one of the largest specialist teams nationally.

"Reputations are easily damaged in this sector—we work quickly and thoroughly to protect clients against harmful reports or prosecutions"
