Boardside founder Richard Port has been ranked as a leading individual by Chambers UK for the fourth consecutive year since launching the firm.
Described in the guide as a “lateral thinker who gets good results”, Richard’s expertise in managing TUPE and redundancy-related matters and advising on allegations of sexual harassment, senior exits and whistle-blowing cases is highlighted in the 2021 guide to the best firms and professionals in the legal industry.
Chambers UK is a respected publication that draws on independent research to rank lawyers in all fields of law. Richard is listed as one of the top employment specialists in the Yorkshire: North and East region.
The 2021 guide goes on to describe him as “a great technical lawyer, but it is the commercial translation of this knowledge that sets him apart.” One former client is quoted as saying: “He was extremely sympathetic, listened acutely to detail, was thorough and professional, and showed a genuine interest in the case.”
Richard launched Boardside in 2018 to provide strategic employment law advice to boards and those who sit on them. He works with clients up and down the country and has recently been involved in a high profile modern slavery case involving a consultant working for a large NHS Trust.

Richard said: “This ranking by Chambers is particularly significant to me as it is based on independent research, peer endorsements and client feedback.
“It comes at a pivotal time for Boardside which is poised for significant growth following the success of our strategic advisory approach.”
