Georgia Terry

Call: 2021

Georgia joined Maitland in September 2023 following the successful completion of her pupillage under the supervision of Richard Fowler, Caley Wright, Rowena Page, and Thomas Fletcher. She is developing a broad commercial chancery practice and accepts instructions across all of Chambers’ practice areas, including Insolvency & Asset Recovery, Company & Partnership, Commercial Litigation & Arbitration and Civil Fraud.

Georgia has significant commercial experience, specifically in the field of cyber security and technology. Before coming to the Bar, Georgia worked for Darktrace, the leading cyber security company, and for Google. Her background brings an extensive understanding of those industries, an appreciation of the business demands that each client faces, and an astutely commercial and pragmatic approach to practice. Georgia maintains a firm interest in cases with technology and cyber considerations.

Georgia received a first-class undergraduate degree in Law from Durham University, placing third overall in her year. She received various university awards and prizes, including for the publication of her final-year dissertation.

In her third year, Georgia studied Spanish Law, in Spanish, at the University of Valladolid, Spain. There, she obtained ‘Outstanding’ grades and placed first in her year of native Spanish students in Contract Law and Commercial Law. Georgia continues to speak Spanish to a strong working proficiency, which facilitates international and multi-jurisdictional elements of her practice.

During pupillage, Georgia assisted with a variety of complex insolvency, commercial and real estate litigation, including assisting Richard Fowler in acting for the successful respondent in a Supreme Court appeal on service charge provisions in commercial leases (Sara & Hossein v Blacks [2022] UKSC 2). She also assisted Rowena Page (led by Andrew Westwood KC) in their successful appeal in Patley Wood v Kicks [2023] EWCA Civ 901, which affirmed the importance of office-holder discretion and independence.

Georgia accepts instructions as sole counsel or as part of a team and is comfortable acting in cases across all of Chambers’ specialisms, including in both the High Court and County Courts.
