Kona (May 30, 2024)—Cades Schutte LLP, Hawai‘i’s largest law firm, announces the strategic expansion of its capabilities on the Big Island of Hawai‘i with the relocation of partner Sachi E. Hiatt. Formerly based in the Honolulu office, Sachi will now operate in a hybrid capacity between the Kona, Waimea, and Honolulu offices, enhancing the firm’s ability to serve clients across the islands.

Sachi is a partner in Cades Schutte’s Finance, Real Estate, and Corporate Department and brings a wealth of experience and expertise to her new role. Her practice focuses on real estate sales and acquisitions, legal issues associated with the formation and maintenance of condominiums, and land use review. Her move will enable her to be more accessible to clients on the Big Island. Raised on the Big Island and a graduate of Hawai‘i Preparatory Academy, Sachi’s deep roots and local knowledge will further strengthen Cades Schutte’s commitment to serving the community.

“It is wonderful for our firm and clients to have Sachi back on the Big Island. She grew up here and has a deep appreciation for the island and its people. Her expertise and experience in most aspects of real estate law are a great fit for our community,” said Roy A. Vitousek III, resident partner of Cades Schutte LLP’s Kona office. “Our Hawai‘i Island Offices opened in 1987, and over the years, we have provided legal assistance to a wide range of clients in all aspects of business and life on the Big Island and throughout the State. Sachi being here on the island will increase our capacity to serve our clients.”

Sachi has been recognized on The Best Lawyers® Ones to Watch list in Real Estate Law since 2021. She has played a pivotal role in numerous multimillion-dollar real estate transactions, providing invaluable counsel to clients navigating complex legal matters.
