Capsticks makes up two to partner in Birmingham as office grows further

Health and social care specialist Capsticks has promoted two lawyers to the partnership in its Birmingham office.

The Wimbledon, London-headquartered firm has made up real estate specialist Lisa Robotham and clinical lawyer Tracey Lucas to partner after opening in Birmingham five years ago.

Earlier this year the firm signed up Coffin Mew’s 28-strong Southampton-based social housing team and last month confirmed the hire of an employment lawyer trio from Trethowans, SGH Martineau and Foot Anstey, growing the Birmingham employment team to eight.

In 2012 the firm promoted five lawyers to partner and three to equity partner (1 April 2012).

Birmingham office head Gary Hay said in a statement: “Lisa and Tracey have a wealth of experience and expertise in their respective areas and have been key to our success.  We have grown rapidly since we opened our office in Birmingham five years ago and, thanks to their hard work, we are now a substantial healthcare presence in the region.”
