Associate | Seattle


Jacob’s practice focuses on employment, consumer protection, intellectual property and commercial law, as well as class action defense. His representation spans all phases of a case from prelitigation evaluation and discovery to dispositive motion practice, trial, and if needed, appeal. Jacob has represented privately held and publicly traded companies considered to be leaders of industry in the agriculture, IoT and specialized insurance markets, as well as individuals and other businesses. He has argued before various state and federal courts, including the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Jacob’s recent works resulted in victory at a trial that dealt with allegations of monopolization and secured the permanent dismissal of eleven of twelve claims in a fraud and trade secrets controversy, leaving only a breach of contract case for further court consideration.

Jacob joined the firm after clerking for the Hon. Mary Kay Becker on the Washington Court of Appeals.
