Why Capsticks? 

Regulatory bodies face the dual challenge of maintaining high professional standards without being judged to have taken disproportionate action.

Representing numerous regulators, including our own professional body, the Solicitors Regulation Authority, we know what it takes to make sure action is proportionate as well as cost-efficient.

With one of the largest teams in this area, we’re able to help clients facing a daunting volume of cases. And, with decades of experience, we’re regularly asked to advise on the most sensitive and high profile cases.

In short, we help regulators to deliver the right outcomes, in the right time frame, on the right budget.

Keeping you one step ahead
Regulators have tough KPIs to hit. With an extensive team and a bespoke case management system, we help clients deliver against those targets with focused evidence gathering and close monitoring of case progression.

To keep clients one step ahead we constantly review the regulatory horizon and run well-received training sessions on changes to legislation and the regulatory landscape. And for teams working within cumbersome frameworks, we help draft policy and guidance to improve efficiencies.

We are one of a very small number of firms who undertake volume work in this specialist field and that’s why we forge long-term relationships with many of our clients and attract some of the best minds in the business.

Key areas we help Professional regulators with include:

  • Advisory

    When it comes to points of law that might be outside your team’s direct expertise, we can advise on a whole range of issues, from constitutional and strategic matters to highly sensitive challenges and appeals.

  • Advocacy

    We have a specialist team of barristers and solicitors, who appear regularly before all forms of disciplinary tribunals and the Courts, including handling statutory appeals and judicial reviews.

  • Individuals

    Alongside our established practice of working for regulators, we have a growing practice in representing professionals facing disciplinary proceedings before their regulators.

  • Investigation

    Evidence gathering and case building are a drain on resource, but with a large team, we’re able to help clients manage even complex cases within a sensible time-frame.
