CLIENT: Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust
COMPANY/FIRM:  Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust
TESTIMONIAL: “As a large complex acute trust the scope and complexity of employment matters vary significantly. As such the legal support I have needed from Capsticks has ranged from the breadth of routine local case work through to the labyrinthine processes outlined in Maintaining High Professional Standards for medical staff. Their straightforward, logical and practical approach has enabled us to progress some difficult cases and preserve the organisations’ interests.”

CLIENT: North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust
COMPANY/FIRM: North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust
TESTIMONIAL: “Since 2015, Capsticks has been providing employment law advice to the Trust on an exclusive basis under a fixed fee agreement, which includes the supply of a lawyer on a placement working closely with the HR team on a weekly basis.  This arrangement works very successfully, it means that we use legal input on the right issues and has received excellent feedback from the HR team at the Trust. The lawyer is also fully integrated into the HR team and we work as a partnership which has enabled the individuals within the HR team to remain self-sufficient, be less risk adverse and develop their own practice whilst the Trust can concentrate on its strategic priorities rather than simply fire-fighting.”

TESTIMONIAL: “Capsticks provided much needed specialist advice on the CQC’s Inspection Regime and Special Measures.  They clearly understood the political aspects as well as the regulatory minefield and the legal position.  Their service was highly professional, responsive and thorough.  They were keen to present options, advise on implications and work proactively in the Trust’s interests.  I would have no hesitation in unreservedly recommending Capsticks for future legal advice and support.”

CLIENT: Cornwall Housing Limited
COMPANY/FIRM: Cornwall Housing Limited
TESTIMONIAL: “I have referred numerous cases and matters to Mike Owen and the extended Capsticks team, ranging between requests for legal advice through to full blown cases for possession of a property based on anti-social behaviour and / or multiple breaches of tenancy agreements.    In all those cases where legal action has ensued or alternatively, [Capsticks has] provided timely and appropriate legal advice, a 100% successful resolution rate has been achieved.”

CLIENT: Aster Group
TESTIMONIAL: “The team at Capsticks has substantially reduced our historic service charge debt, and has done so very efficiently.  Their support has come at zero costs as all of their fees have been recovered direct from the debtors or their mortgage lenders.  The bonus is that our reputation for pursuing recovery has led to a fewer defaulters and reduced the time we had previously incurred in pursuing payment before referring to Capsticks. The team at Capsticks are friendly and approachable and I would recommend them to any organisation looking to recover outstanding payments swiftly and with the minimum of fuss.”
