Stewart Cook opens a new window

Senior Associate


I am a senior associate in Fox Williams’ commerce and technology team. I advise on non-contentious technology matters, with a particular focus on financial technology.


Stewart works with disruptive tech companies and, to a lesser extent, companies procuring disruptive technology, whether they are start-ups, high-growth businesses, or established multinational businesses.

Stewart has extensive experience advising and representing clients on technology matters across a variety of sectors and industries. Stewart’s typical workload entails advising on, drafting, and negotiating commercial contracts for technology clients and assisting with regulatory perimeter guidance in connection with financial services (predominantly e-money and payment services) and AML regulatory questions.  Stewart regularly works on matters with a cross border element.

Stewart joined Fox Williams in November 2023 from Deloitte Legal’s London office, having previously worked for Taylor Vinters/Mishcon de Reya (Mishcon de Reya merged with Taylor Vinters) in London and Mattersmith Limited, a hybrid IT law firm and LawTech business based in the North East.
