Troutman Pepper Partner Ben Wagner Named to the Daily Journal’s 2023 Top Intellectual Property Lawyers List
SAN DIEGO – Ben Wagner, a partner in Troutman Pepper’s Intellectual Property Practice Group, has been recognized as a 2023 Top Intellectual Property Lawyer by the Daily Journal. The recognition honors leading California intellectual property lawyers focused on litigation, transactions, and counseling.
A seasoned, go-to intellectual property and complex commercial litigator, Wagner has handled hundreds of disputes for clients ranging from startups to established multinationals in a diverse range of industries, including apparel, consumer goods, life sciences, medical devices, real estate development, and professional sports. A devoted advocate for plaintiffs and defendants, over the past decade, he has recovered more than $85 million for plaintiffs and IP rights holders and successfully defended against more than $120 million in claims, and currently manages IP portfolios with total claim values estimated above $1.3 billion. His tailored approach to litigation values finding and targeting the right stones, rather than simply insisting on turning over every stone.
Wagner has been recognized for his IP work by several industry authorities. Earlier this year, he was recognized among WTR1000’s list of worldwide leading IP practitioners in trademark enforcement and litigation. He also has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America® (Litigation – Intellectual Property, 2023), Managing Intellectual Property (IP Star, 2022), and the San Diego Business Journal (Leaders in Law – IP, 2021), among other publications.
In determining its 2023 Top Intellectual Property Lawyers, Daily Journal editors reviewed hundreds of nominations submitted by lawyers statewide, with honorees selected based on the impact of their work in intellectual property.
