The POWER 30: William R. Skolnick

January 16, 2024

Family business litigation is often referred to as a divorce. But sometimes the business fight is about a divorce, and vice versa.

That was the case of Westgate Cups et al. v. Cheryl Coughlin, a Wisconsin case where Minneapolis lawyer William Skolnick represented Coughlin, ex-wife and ex-business partner of Westgate’s owner. Although the couple’s divorce was over, Westgate sued Coughlin for breach of fiduciary duty, conspiracy against the company and tortious interference with contractual relationship.
