George Smith

Trainee Solicitor

George graduated with a first-class masters’ degree in Law at Northumbria University in 2016 shortly before accepting a training contract with Muckle LLP. During his time at Muckle, George has worked as Paralegal in Dispute Resolution, Corporate, Construction & Engineering and Debt Recovery making him competent in multiple fields. He is especially experienced in e-disclosure having been involved in various multi-million pound contract disputes.

George completed his first seat in our Real Estate team, where he supported many non-contentious matters. His second seat was in the Commercial team, advising on a wide range of legal matters including charity incorporation, data protection and drafting commercial contracts. He even advised on how Brexit might affect professional sports teams.

George has now returned to Real Estate, where he expects to advance many of the skills he gained previously and support the team in as many areas as possible.

Outside of his legal role, George is big part of our BEAM (Being Engaged At Muckle) team. Chief party-planner George helps organise the firm’s social events,  putting his five years’ leisure industry experience, gained before he joined Muckle, to good use.
