Interior Of Modern Office

Cades Schutte is proud to announce that once again, a record number of attorneys have been recognized this year in the Best Lawyers® and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch Lists in Hawai‘i. Forty lawyers have been included in the 2022 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America and ten lawyers have been included in the 2022 Edition of Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, with four newly recognized attorneys this year(*).

In addition, Marc E. Rousseau (Mergers and Acquisitions Law) and Theodore D.C. Young (Litigation – Bankruptcy) were named as 2022 Best Lawyers “Lawyer Of the Year” in the state of Hawai‘i based on nominations for their work in 2020. Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year”, making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on particularly impressive voting averages received during the peer review assessments.

Lawyers on the Best Lawyers lists are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers based on professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process to make sure they are in current practice and in good standing. Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch recognizes associates and other lawyers who are earlier in their careers for their outstanding professional excellence in private practice in the United States.

Cades Schutte LLP would like to congratulate the following lawyers named to 2022 The Best Lawyers in America and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch lists:
