Skigen, Wayne D. Partner
Wayne Skigen represents individuals, businesses and not-for-profit entities, as plaintiffs and defendants, in a wide variety of civil matters, including complex commercial, corporate and partnership litigation, in connection with disputes relating to governance, fiduciary duties, privacy rights, “business divorces,” employment claims, real estate transactions, officer and director liability, enforcement and avoidance of covenants not to compete, buy-outs of ownership interests, acquisitions and distributorships. He also is a trained mediator with service as a court-appointed mediator and enjoys providing mediation services in a variety of civil matters.
As a litigator with almost four decades of experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in high-stakes, complex cases, Wayne has participated in countless mediations resulting in successful outcomes and he has demonstrated an understanding of how to facilitate productive negotiations and creative approaches to arrive at beneficial outcomes that avoid the expense and risk of an adjudicated disposition. Wayne has built on that experience and obtained training as a mediator in immersive programs from providers such as the American Arbitration Association and thereafter obtained numerous court appointments as a mediator. Wayne is now happy to bring his talents, litigation experience and dedication to facilitated resolutions to the private sector and is looking forward to future engagements as a mediator.
Prior to joining Tressler to help open the St. Louis Metropolitan office, Wayne was a partner in boutique litigation firms in San Francisco and Beverly Hills, California and was a partner at Illinois-based HeplerBroom. Most recently, he carried on a diverse litigation practice at the highly-regarded Lucco Brown firm in Edwardsville, Illinois. For over 35 years, he has litigated complex civil matters and has tried and arbitrated many high-stakes and high-profile cases to successful conclusions. He has repeatedly been named a Super Lawyer and a Leading Lawyer in Illinois.
