Firm Overview

We have a diverse civil practice with emphasis in all aspects of real property law, intellectual property law, business law, and civil litigation. Specific areas of practice include real estate, corporate and partnership matters, commercial litigation, patents, copyrights, trademarks, bankruptcy, taxation, trusts and estate planning, environmental, land use, condemnation, health care, employment, family, commercial, technology, banking and finance law. We have worked closely with title, escrow and mortgage companies, and other businesses and financial institutions located both in Hawaii and in the continental United States. We have assisted our clients in various aspects of commercial and residential loan documentation and workouts, foreclosures, collections, financial institution regulatory compliance, commercial development, residential and condominium projects, and leasing. We also have a large litigation practice which includes representation of clients in some of the most significant cases in the state. We represent some of the largest land owners in the state. While much of the firm's litigation practice is Real Estate related, the department also handles a broad range of general commercial litigation, arbitration and mediation.

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

Depends on the specific situation, but as a general rule no.

What are your policies about dividing work within the firm to make the process most cost-effective for the client?

We attribute our success to the system of client support which we use. Most client matters are approached on a team basis. Depending upon the specific needs, lawyers (both partners and associates), legal assistants, and other staff may be involved in handling a client's case. We make a concerted effort to benefit from experience and to use team efforts to minimize client expenses. In every case, individual attention and independent analysis are the focus of our approach.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

We do use mediation and arbitration but also take cases to trial.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Experience and quality of the attorneys.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

It is a good for clients to educate themselves on legal issues.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Depends on the specific situation.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

No.
