David S Wayne
David Wayne represents companies in complex business disputes, particularly those involving real estate, commercial disputes and employment-related matters. He has successfully litigated cases to judgment in Illinois state and federal courts, as well as to award before the American Arbitration Association, and he frequently appears before state and federal agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Illinois Department of Human Rights.
David's breadth of experience as a litigator has also enabled him to hone his skills as a trusted advisor and outside general counsel to successful entrepreneurs and business owners. In addition to assisting with dispute resolution (both pre-litigation and once in court), David also provides his clients with an array of services. These include drafting and negotiating employment and independent contractor agreements, preparing vendor agreements, and reviewing and counseling relating to leases, brokerage agreements and other real estate related contracts. Beyond these services, David also draws on his experience as a litigator to help business owners triage the issues they face and, when necessary, direct them to outside sources of assistance.
