Harrogate lawyer Richard Port, who launched his own niche legal practice in the town a year ago, has been ranked by legal guide Chambers UK as one of the top employment law practitioners in Yorkshire.
Richard set up Boardside in 2017 to provide strategic employment law advice to boards and senior executives.
Before establishing his practice in Harrogate he held partner roles at Ward Hadaway and Clarion Solicitors and prior to that spent a number of years working as part of the Leeds employment team at Addleshaw Goddard.
He has advised company boards, UK trusts and senior executives, including those from FTSE 100 companies, on employment law issues, including advice on strategic exits and restrictive covenants.
Chambers praised Richard for his “attention to detail, his empathy and his determination to get a good result for his clients.”
Richard said: “Chambers UK is a highly respected guide that is based on independent research and feedback from clients and peers.
“To have been ranked amongst the leading employment law professionals in Yorkshire just one year after launching my own firm is a significant endorsement of my work for individuals and companies over the past year and recognises the level of expertise that I am able to provide to boards and senior teams,” he added.
