The Lawyer recognised Andrew for being at the forefront of COVID-19-related legal work since March 2020 and the calm way in which he has guided Capsticks’ divisions through the crisis to ensure efficiency in urgent situations.

The Lawyer says:-

“Hopefully, a crisis of this size will never emerge again for the NHS; however, should it do so, one can only hope Andrew Rowland & co are there to help.”

Andrew is Head of Capsticks’ national NHS healthcare practice and a partner in the employment division. Having started with the firm as a trainee, he has been with Capsticks for over 24 years and became a partner in 2004. He works with NHS clients daily and, as Head of NHS Healthcare, Andrew leads the firm’s 200-strong healthcare team looking after our NHS clients.

Capsticks is a leading UK law firm providing specialist legal advice to the health, housing, regulatory and social care sectors. Capsticks’ focus is on helping its clients stay one step ahead. This came to the forefront this year during the pandemic when we supported clients at the frontline of dealing with COVID-19.

Andrew Rowland commented:-

“I’m delighted to be included on this list.  It’s really recognition of all the incredible work that my colleagues across the firm have done to support our healthcare clients over the last 41 years and especially over the past year.  Healthcare work has always been at the heart of what Capsticks does. I’m very proud that we have been able to provide fast-paced, innovative advice to help through the pandemic over the past year.”

Rachael Heenan, Senior Partner commented:-

“We are really proud of the work that Andrew and the health team have carried out this year to support our clients. Andrew has always been at the heart of Capsticks and his leadership during the pandemic and the team’s work has been second to none.”
