Business & Real Estate


Maui Business Law Lawyer


20 Years of Business Law and Real Estate Practice

If you are starting a business or buying or selling real estate, you may be involved with one of the largest and most important financial transactions of your life. With so much at stake, it is important to work with a lawyer who has a good understanding of the law and the community.


Business Background and Way of Thinking

When you are looking for sound business advice, you want to work with someone who understands the issues businesses face and can think with strong business acumen. Before attending law school, I obtained a degree in Business Finance.  As a business and real estate lawyer for the past 20 years, I have gained the knowledge and experience necessary to achieve positive results for my clients in business law and real estate matters:


Business law: When forming a new business, it is important to build a strong foundation at the outset can help avoid unnecessary disputes and lawsuits down the road. I draft and review business law contracts to properly document the terms of your business transactions. I also work with clients to help them choose the appropriate entity for their business, including corporations, LLCs and partnerships.


Real estate: I work with clients to complete residential, agricultural, and commercial real estate transactions. I advise clients regarding the purchase and sale of real estate, negotiating terms of contracts, drafting leases and development agreements, and providing due diligence review. I have represented clients ranging from single family homeowners, up to multi-million dollar acquisitions and sales.


Asset Protection:  The way you structure your business or property ownership, using LLCs, limited partnerships and other entities, or other title options, can protect your assets from creditors.  It can make the difference whether you keep or lose your property in the case of a lawsuit.  As you know, often the more you own, the greater a target you are for financial predators.  We use a variety of asset protection measures to provide you with the level of protection you desire and are willing to invest in.  The time to structure your asset protection plan is before, not after a claim arises.
