Mission and Values

We are a community of colleagues who enjoy practicing law together and helping clients achieve their business and wealth preservation goals while anticipating and resolving potential problems before they materialize.

To do this effectively, we realize and value excellence in client service, professional development, and a work/life balance for all of our attorneys and staff, above all else.

We take a strong interest in the success of new associates, providing them with countless training opportunities and with mentors who take a genuine interest in their success. We continually invest in our team by providing opportunities for development based on each person’s desired career path. Our goal is to give each and every member of our team the opportunity to achieve their best, and take pride in their performance and quality of work.

Our understanding of the importance of life outside of work is something we take great pride in. We genuinely value the time we get to spend with our families and our ability to balance it with working in our communities; we highly encourage pro bono and community activities. This approach gives our attorneys and staff the opportunity to deliver creative legal solutions to clients and the time to pursue interests as diverse and multidimensional as the people who our firm is made of.

Our culture values our people—not just their professional development, but their passions, goals, and their families. In so doing, we believe we are the most effective choice for our clients.

We regularly handle complex cases and sophisticated corporate transactions, and while we serve a large and diverse client base, we’re devoted to retaining the best characteristics and qualities of a smaller, local firm. Our attorneys are accessible–we take the time to know you and understand your needs.

We serve some of the foremost organizations and institutions in Hawai‘i as well as across the globe.

The unique qualities and experiences of each person, as well as their countless contributions, allow us to develop strong relationships, internally and externally, and offer more impactful and innovative solutions to the complex issues our clients are faced with. We hold high expectations of every member of our team, with a service mindset of going beyond— considering the relevance, implications, and effects of our actions, always delivering more than what was asked, and proactively anticipating for the future.

Our firm is a community with a passion for excellence.
