Yorkshire law firm Ison Harrison has appointed a new senior solicitor to its corporate law division.

Corporate employment expert Ben Palmer will be based at Ison Harrison’s Leeds City Centre office. He joins Ison Harrison’s expanding regional team having previously been head of the employment division at Oakwood Solicitors.

Ben brings over 14 years of employment expertise to the firm and has acted on behalf of a wide range of clients ranging from airlines, PLCs and pharmaceutical companies to manufacturing businesses, registered charities, schools and SMEs. 

Ben specialises in providing commercially aware and pragmatic HR and employment law advice to his clients, including assisting clients with mergers and acquisitions. He also has a proven track record of successfully representing clients embroiled in complex and high value employment tribunal litigation. 

As the firm’s new dedicated employment specialist on the firm’s corporate team, Ben’s role will see him helping expand the firm’s employment offering whilst also coordinating with teams of professionals from across the firm’s growing network of 15 regional offices, the newest of which opened in Bingley in January. 

In his new position, Ben will be linking back up with Richard Coulthard, partner and head of corporate services, who he previously worked with at another firm in supporting a commercial client base.

Ben Palmer said: “I’m looking forward to growing the firm’s expert corporate offering and building on its excellent reputation in the employment sector. Ison Harrison is a progressive firm especially in the arena of corporate law and continues to affirm its position as one of the leading firms in the region.”

Commenting on the appointment, Jonathan Wearing, managing partner said: “This is our latest in a series of recent strategic appointments and underpins our ongoing commitment to growing the business, building on the solid progress we have achieved in the last few years. With Ben spearheading our corporate employment function, the aim is to fully engage the expertise that the team across our network of regional offices can offer.

Ben brings a good deal of valuable experience across a variety of client sectors and his addition to the team represents another major step forward for our continued growth plans.”
