Before forming Waterway Black in 2013, our founding partners built successful trial practices at a sophisticated international litigation and business law firm. Combining this background with a passion for client service, a zeal for efficiency, and a flair for law and courtroom technology, the attorneys of Waterway Black are ideally positioned to achieve best possible results on a small business budget.

non-compete-agreementWaterway Black successfully enforced a noncompete agreement on behalf of a transportation client without the client having to file a lawsuit. Through aggressive and strategic action, we prosecuted the company’s claim and negotiated a favorable settlement without having to initiate formal court proceedings.

The settlement is another example of Waterway Black’s ability to leverage practical business sense with vibrant legal skill to achieve cost-efficient results that add value to our clients’ businesses.

Law SeminarKelsey Black, a member of the Defense Research Institute’s Women in the Law Marketing Committee, attended the three day Women in the Law Seminar in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

DRI’s Women in the Law Seminar is the premier educational and networking event for women defense lawyers. The program tackled legal issues and emerging trends that “keep clients up at night” and provided practice pointers that enable in-house lawyers and outside counsel to partner for success.
