Ken Waterway has served civil litigation clients throughout the Southeast for 20 years. After completing law school at the University of Michigan in 1993, he began his career with a revered Fort Lauderdale trial firm and forged a practice representing primarily corporate clients in cases involving death and catastrophic injury, as well as complex commercial litigation. For the ten years leading up to the formation of Waterway Black in February 2013, Ken was part of a select team of regional counsel for one of the largest global manufacturing corporations in some of the most challenging jurisdictions in the U.S., including two that annually rank among the “worst judicial hellholes” in the country. Ken has represented one of the world’s largest transportation companies throughout South Florida for nearly two decades. Ken’s long-standing excellence on behalf of corporate and individual clients is reflected in his repeated achievement of Martindale-Hubbell AV-preeminent ratings (5.0 out of 5.0) based on confidential peer review of ethical standards and professional ability.
