The Energy Team at Muckle LLP has extended its expertise with the appointment of a new partner.

George Festing has joined Muckle with a wealth of experience in resolving Intellectual Property (IP) disputes for national and international clients. His experience has been gained helping to protect clients on a wide range of contractual disputes involving copyright and trade mark infringement, design and brand identity.

George’s appointment in this specialist role positions Muckle LLP with leading contentious IP capability based locally in the North East. Businesses now no longer need to look to London to resolve complex contractual issues involving their IP.

George’s experience is not limited to contentious IP. He has also advised clients in relation to disputes involving commercial contracts, partnerships, and company and directorship issues.

Originally from Hexham in Northumberland, having studied at Durham University before heading to London where he developed his career for 11 years, George has now returned to his North East roots.

George said: “I am thrilled to be working for Muckle LLP which provides me with a great opportunity to develop the firm’s IP dispute resolution practice. I was already aware of Muckle’s reputation for winning complex litigation so am pleased to enhance their capabilities in continuing to provide commercially astute advice to clients.”
