Jacob W. Wagner's Profile Image

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 assisting in the preparation of original domestic patent applications, responses to domestic Office actions from originally-filed applications, and responses to foreign Office actions from China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and the European Patent Office. Additionally, Jacob has conducted state-of-the-art investigations on potentially inventive concepts.

Currently, Jacob is a patent agent and a law student, and is expecting to graduate from law school with a law degree in 2020.

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).
