Jacob W. Wagner, Ph.D.

Fax: (440) 290-4508

Jacob Wagner’s extensive technical background has prepared him to work on a wide array of subject matter including chemical, materials, optical, computer program, digital logic, manufacturing, processing, mechanical, and polymer related inventions.

Jacob has experience preparing original domestic patent applications. Jacob also has experience preparing responses to domestic Office actions from originally-filed applications and responses to foreign Office actions from the National Intellectual Property Administration of China, European Patent Office, Japan Patent Office, Korean Intellectual Property Office, Taiwan Intellectual Property Office, and Intellectual Property India. Additionally, Jacob has conducted state-of-the-art investigations on potentially inventive concepts.

Currently, Jacob is a patent agent and a law student, and Jacob is expecting to graduate from law school with a law degree in May 2020. Jacob is the Managing Editor for the IP Edition of the Akron Law Review.

Jacob is a member of the ABA (American Bar Association), OSBA (Ohio State Bar Association), CMBA (Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association), CIPLA (Cleveland IP Law Association), and IPTLA (University of Akron’s IP and Trademark Association).
