We have represented both large and small businesses in commercial litigation. We have appeared in cases involving complex contract, business interference, and construction matters. Among the firm's corporate clientele are banks and financial institutions, the hotel industry, and pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

Construction Litigation
Since the 1960's, Hawaii has expanded rapidly with significant increases in hotels, office buildings, residential condominiums, townhouses, and single family dwellings. Our firm has represented and defended product suppliers, general contractors, subcontractors, sureties, architects, and engineers in litigation arising out of construction projects.

Our firm provides a full range of advisory and documentation services on all commercial transactions. This includes formation of business entities, dissolution and mergers, and advice on commercial matters and a broad range of substantive areas.

Insurance Law Litigation
Since its inception, our firm has had extensive experience and success in handling insurance-related matters including declaratory relief, coverage disputes, duty to defend issues and all aspects of bad faith controversies.

Personal Injury Litigation
Our firm has extensive experience in the preparation and trial of all types of personal injury cases. We regularly handle cases for several national insurance companies. Our knowledge of the unique aspects of medical malpractice cases has been fine-tuned through extensive participation in the defense of medical negligence cases in which we represent several of Hawaii's hospitals, leading clinics, and individual physicians. We also enjoy a successful practice in other areas of personal injury litigation, including product liability actions, premises liability litigation, hotel and security service liability, pharmaceutical litigation, toxic tort litigation, aviation and admiralty law, automobile accident litigation, and no-fault and uninsured motorist law.
