Hawaii Real Estate & Business Law and Commercial Litigation

Our Hawaii business lawyers and litigation attorneys form a team of fighters who are prepared to go the distance, but who are also on the lookout for rational business solutions and outside-of-the-box opportunities.  Almost every case has a moment in time when a settlement is to the client’s advantage.  A good trial team pays close attention to this dynamic and proactively keeps the client informed about settlement opportunities and risk/rewards of further litigation versus settlement. And when we are called to the fight, we go full throttle.

We are experienced in Hawaii real estate transactions and development, hotels, corporate finance, international transactions, secured transactions, mergers and acquisitions, construction law, mold litigation and complex commercial litigation, including “bet-the-company” litigation.

Our Hawaii real estate law, business and litigation attorneys have been selected for inclusion to The Best Lawyers in America© list, Hawaii Super Lawyers®, Benchmark Litigation, the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers™, Chambers and Partners USA Legal Directory of America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide and have earned Martindale-Hubbell’s® highest "AV Preeminent"® rating.
