Why Capsticks?

The climate for the Education sector is turbulent. As well as issues around student fees, academy conversions, Brexit and teaching quality, there’s more public scrutiny and regulatory pressure than ever. Reputations can be easily damaged.

We work with educational institutions including universities, FE colleges, schools and academies to take the strain off their management teams and advise on specialist issues in areas including commercial contracts, governance, estates and human resources.

Our team offers comprehensive and cost-effective legal advice that helps institutions get the best possible value, and keep reputations intact.

Keeping you one step ahead
We’re pro-active with our advice. With regular updates on the latest legal news in Education, seminars and also by speaking at major industry events, we keep our clients informed of change.

With a full range of services for Education providers, we are the ideal solution for all your legal work. From reputational crises to long-term property investments or collaborative joint ventures, we have the expertise to help you manage the challenges.

Key areas we help educational institutions with include:

Commercial projects

Whether your institution is looking to partner in a commercial project or collaborate with the public sector, we’re highly experienced at drawing up agreements that make the most of efficiency savings, shared services and joint working.


Recent high-profile cases have put the spotlight firmly on contracts and governance. With our extensive experience in the NHS we’re well-versed in helping organisations deal with reputational damage, misleading claims and best practice.


A statement building or prestigious new facility can be a huge factor in attracting new students or in freeing up space for academy expansion. Our experience in real estate helps make sure you get the best value out of any deal, that projects run smoothly and that your interests are fully protected.
