Your blue light estate

Our real estate team specialises in working for the public sector, based in our offices in London, Birmingham, Chorley, Leeds and Winchester. We have a proven track record in securing results for our public sector clients, combined with a wealth of experience, expertise and capacity to advise and support on all aspects of your estate.

What makes Capsticks different?

We recognise that your estate plays a key role in your day to day activities. It’s vital for your organisation to keep ahead of the curve in developing innovative solutions to meet your estates challenges. We have a breadth of experience acting for Ambulance Trusts, Police and Fire Services, NHS bodies and other public and third sector organisations as well as social housing Registered Providers across the country. Because of this, we’re uniquely placed to provide advice around income generation and efficiency savings that can help deliver real value to your blue light estate.

We’re also seeing a movement towards far more extensive joint working and collaboration between emergency services, both in the form of co-located developments such as ambulance community response posts within fire stations and combined blue light facilities and headquarters, as well as efficiency savings projects including flexible shared space and shared back office functions. Our work to date has been at the forefront of this trend, and we can utilise the “lessons learned” from these projects to give your organisation a unique insight and advantage in your own estates negotiations.

Last but by no means least, we know how important it is for you to obtain value for money from your legal advice.
