Commercial litigation and intellectual property disputes occupy most of Ben Wagner’s time. A native San Diegan, and one of four quadruplet brothers, Wagner practices litigation with Top Attorney Andrew Skale (2008) and San Diego Super Lawyer Daniel Pascucci (2007-2009) in the San Diego office of international law firm, Mintz Levin.
Wagner’s litigation experience began with local law school internships for State Judge Linda B. Quinn and Federal District Judge Larry A. Burns. After graduating from the University of San Diego School of Law magna cum laude, Wagner took this valuable behind-the-scenes perspective with him as he began his litigation career. He soon found himself staffed on cases for a diverse array of firm clients -- from trademark disputes for Yahoo! Inc., pro-football player Shawne Merriman and Angles BeautyCare Group, to copyright litigation for urban clothing companies New Name Inc. and Urban Outfitters Inc., to patent litigation for SeQual Technologies Inc., a local medical device company.
In addition to his litigation practice, Wagner serves on Mintz Levin’s Pro Bono Committee and oversees its local domestic violence intervention program. He is continually seeking out opportunities that will further his firm’s strategic pro bono mission, while improving the local and national community. He is a member of the 2010 National Task Force on Law School Outreach for the Federal Bar Association, and co-newsletter editor and member of the Federal Bar Association local chapter’s 2010 Executive Committee.
In each of his complex commercial and intellectual property disputes, Wagner strives to bring a sense of reason and creative solutions to his cases. Drawing on the broad experiences of his litigation team, Wagner refuses to take a one-size-fits-all approach to litigation and tailors each case to its particular needs and dynamics. In November, Wagner hosted a two-part presentation on the importance of integrity to business success, featuring keynote speaker Willie Yang, international businessman and CEO of iconic shoe company Pony.
Wagner is admitted to the California state bar, as well as the Southern, Central and Northern Districts of California. He is a member of the American Bar Association and the Federal Bar Association.
