Nick Porter

Senior Associate

I qualified as a lawyer in 2002 and joined Buckles in 2010.

I advise on a broad range of commercial disputes, including contract disputes, shareholder and partnership disputes, professional negligence matters and the enforcement of restrictive covenants in employment contracts. I have particular expertise in seeking and defending injunction proceedings, and regularly act for clients in urgent proceedings in the High Court.

I’m experienced in advising on insolvency matters, both personal and corporate, and regularly act for many of the leading Insolvency Practitioners in the region. I’m an Associate Member of R3, the Association of Business Recovery Professionals and have obtained the ICAEW Certificate in Insolvency qualification.

Away from work, I am a long suffering Ipswich Town fan. I also enjoy mucking about on a river in a canoe or a kayak (there is a difference!), followed by a decent pub lunch.

Nick is a Legal 500 Rising Star. A Rising Star has been defined by Legal 500 as “…associates who make a material difference to the practice.”

  • I have had great personal service. The people I deal with are always accessible. They are very polite and respectful but always give good advice. They are never afraid to challenge us when we discuss matters they don’t agree with. We are very lucky to be dealing with Nick Porter, who is by far the most logical, challenging and pragmatic solicitor we have ever dealt with. We are very lucky to have found him. He’s also a really nice guy.
