Peter McCormick, senior and managing partner of Leeds firm McCormicks, is lying low following allegations that he instructed a witness to lie in court.
The claims arose after Leeds United Football Club player Michael Duberry told Hull Crown Court that McCormick told him not to change his original police statement, despite Duberry's admission that he had lied.
McCormick, who is one of the country's leading sports lawyers and a director of Leeds FC, was acting as his solicitor.
Leeds FC players Jonathan Woodgate and Lee Bowyer are accused of causing grievous bodily harm to Sarfraz Najeib, which they both deny. Duberry was appearing as a witness. He told the court that he had wanted to change his police statement, but that McCormick had told him to "stick with it".
McCormick is unwilling to comment until the trial is over. The case continues.
