Stuart Bevan, Peter James

Son of the British barrister and conservative politician, Stuart James Bevan, KC MP, Peter James Stuart Bevan (1901-1968) was a leading figure of the patent bar in the 1950s and the early 1960s. Although he did not take silk, his practice was of considerable importance, particularly because he was often instructed by the Treasury Solicitor to represent the Comptroller of the Patent Office.
