Recognized to Nebraska Chapter for Mediation & Arbitration


Wayne is an experienced litigator who has recently chosen to more intensely focus his practice on mediations and arbitrations. Towards this end he has and continues to undergo training in the areas of mediation and arbitration having recently completed a course on mediation offered by the American Arbitration Association which focused on the ethical tactics of successful mediators.  

Wayne has been associated with Fraser Stryker P.C., LLO in Omaha, Nebraska since his graduation from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 1972.  He became a partner in the firm in 1977.  In 1989 Wayne was invited into Fellowship in the American College of Trial Lawyers and was inducted in March of 1990 at the age of 42. 

Wayne's litigation experience is broad and varied.  Wayne has spent a good deal of his career representing companies involved in commercial and complex civil litigation. Wayne has also regularly represented owners, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and design professionals in the litigation of construction disputes. In this regard a part of Wayne's litigation practice has involved handling claims against contractor bonds on behalf of material suppliers supplying materials to public and private projects.  

In addition, Wayne has been regularly engaged by insurance carriers to defend individuals and corporations sued for damages due to personal injuries and property damage arising out of alleged negligence and product defects.  Wayne has frequently been asked to defend attorneys in professional negligence actions and has also defended dentists  and accountants in professional negligence actions.  

Wayne has represented individuals accused of violating their noncompete agreements and has represented individuals in actions against their employer for discrimination.  

As noted above, a significant part of Wayne's practice in recent years has been the representation of owners, contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and design professionals in the negotiation of construction-related contracts, and, the counseling of owners, contractors, subcontractors, and design professionals respecting claims arising out of their performance of construction-related contracts.  Notwithstanding his interest in this area, Wayne has, nevertheless, continued to be actively involved an all other areas of litigation.

Drawing on his experience in construction related law, Wayne is a member of the national panel of construction arbitrators and mediators of the American Arbitration Association and is regularly appointed to serve as the arbitration or mediation neutral in construction-related cases. 

In addition to his work with the American Arbitration Association, and, after undergoing mediation training offered by the Nebraska Center for Alternative Dispute Resolution, Wayne has, for more than 10 years, successfully served as a mediation neutral in a wide variety of non construction related cases. 

A sampling of the types of cases Wayne has mediated is as follows:
