Hawai`i’s reliance on the tourist industry means that retail businesses play a large part in the economy of the islands.

Our attorneys have worked with the individual entrepreneur just starting a business to established retailers with a national and international presence.  From initial business formation and organization to tax structuring, and property lease or acquisition to ongoing compliance and labor management, our team works to help you start and keep your business running.

Many of our attorneys counsel major kama‘aina companies, helping them in various aspects of their businesses throughout the islands, from franchising to property acquisition to labor disputes to navigating regulations, to e-commerce.  Our attorneys have been instrumental in helping national and international retailers with their acquisition and development of their new retail presence in Hawai`i.
