“My patent work spans nearly thirty years and I have mainly worked with very prestigious patent attorneys. Without doubt Stewart Cameron is the very best patent attorney I have ever worked with. Stewart is objective, comprehensive, thorough, perceptive, and easy to work with.”
Stewart says that one of the most rewarding aspects of his role as a patent attorney is being among the first to hear about new innovations: “Securing strong protection for clients’ ideas is very rewarding. My engineering degree often helps me get to the bottom of technical matters quickly which is great because if you don’t understand something, you can’t protect it properly!”
