Who's Who Legal Patents

Stephen Perry is viewed as one of Canada’s leading patent agents. He is co-author (with Andrew Currier) of Canadian Patent Law (Butterworths, 2012, second edition, 2014), the first text on the subject by patent prosecutors in over 30 years. Stephen started in the field of IP in 1983 and qualified as a patent agent before the US and Canadian patent offices in 1985. His practice is focused on developing and managing international IP portfolios for Canadian technology companies of every size, covering a broad range of innovations in the fields of telecommunications, electronics, software, display technology, medical imaging and medical devices.

Stephen is active as an adviser and commentator on both Canadian and international patent and industrial design issues. He has served on council of the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada (IPIC) and the Canadian section of the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys (FICPI) and has chaired or currently serves on various committees of both organisations, including the committees involved in development of the IPIC Code of Conduct and advancing proposals for professional self-regulation. Stephen is also frequently called upon to contribute his insight and views to government agencies and committees on policy and legislative matters affecting intellectual property.

Stephen received his Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Queen’s University. Stephen was given the J Edward Maybee Memorial Award from the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada in celebration of his overall standing in the Candian Patent Agents Qualifying Examination (1985).

WWL says: Stephen Perry is one of Canada’s leading authorities on international patent and design issues.
