Business Law and Governance

Our business law attorneys offer assistance with preparing business inception documents, and negotiating and drafting a wide range of business agreements.

With the ever evolving business environment our business law professionals strive to understand the nuances of each client’s unique needs and work to develop long-standing relationships.

Corporate governance broadly refers to the system of rules, processes, and relations by which business entities, such as corporations and limited liability companies, are controlled and directed. Corporate governance trends and best practices have evolved rapidly since the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act enacted in 2010 and influence all types of businesses, whether large or small.

Our corporate law attorneys also have broad experience assisting and advising a variety of clients ranging from startup companies to well-established businesses on corporate law, compliance and government matters. We are also proud to have one of Hawai‘i’s largest non-profits practice representing a broad range of organizations including hospitals, educational and research institutions, social service agencies and foundations.
