Biography

Ken is an accomplished advocate with 20+ years of experience in insurance litigation, commercial litigation, and entertainment law.

As part of his national subrogation practice specializing in large property damage cases, Ken has handled cases all across the country in both state and federal court. He is proficient at investigating loss scenes, working with expert witnesses, and determining the cause and origin of the incident quickly and efficiently so that his clients can make an informed decision on whether to pursue any particular claim.

For those cases requiring litigation, Ken is an excellent researcher, writer, and advocate in the courtroom for his clients. He is familiar with all forms of alternative dispute resolution, and he always keeps in mind that his primary role is to protect his client’s interests. Ken has handled every type of large property loss, from steel mills to sausage factories, in locales ranging from Alaska to Georgia, and everywhere in between.

A lifelong patron of the arts, Ken is extremely knowledgeable about the film and television industry in Chicago, and seeks to use his knowledge to work more often with local filmmakers and storytellers to help them be able to tell their stories to a wider audience. He also fancies himself to be a bit of an actor as well, and you may have noticed him in the corner of your television screen during almost any television show with the word “Chicago” in the title. Ken also likes watching birds and listening to 1980s heavy metal music, which makes for some interesting vacations.
