Intellectual Property

George Festing


18 years qualified

Having worked at a boutique litigation practice in London’s West End for nearly 10 years, George finally couldn’t resist the bright lights of the North East any longer and joined the Muckle team in 2014.

His particular expertise is in dealing with contentious matters that involve issues relating to intellectual property rights and the internet. He also has significant experience in acting for clients in complex and often high-profile commercial disputes and has advised on IP legal matters in a wide range of sectors including tech, pharma, manufacturing, media and entertainment, leisure and charities.

George has been involved in some of the most cutting edge developments in IP in recent years, and clients have described him as “one of the best” for IP and technology.

George used to write, record and perform his own music, and once appeared in the same line-up as Jools Holland and Coldplay, which is no doubt why Legal 500 2017 quoted commentators find him “calm, assured and very reliable”.
