Clients comment that Stewart is great at distilling complex legal issues into an easily understandable form, and instilling confidence that their “baby” (e.g. a potentially valuable idea, product, design or brand etc.) is safe in his hands.
Recognising clients’ dislike of professional advisors that simply “churn out” generic work without thought for the wider commercial situation, client’s comment that Stewart’s advice is always relevant and matched to their overall objectives and budgets.

“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!”

Stewart serves clients throughout the UK and has extensive experience working with a wide variety of clients in many different industry sectors, with particular expertise in mechanical and electro-mechanical subject matter.

Witnessing first hand a clients’ eventual new product (which we helped protect with patent and design applications from the earliest stage) literally flying off the shelf at a trade fair!
“The devil is in the detail” – I have found that bearing this in mind can help avoid many problems in IP – and in life more generally!
