Goodsill attorneys, many of whom were born and raised in the islands, understand Hawaiʻi laws and its unique business landscape. While our Hawaiʻi roots run deep, we also have a broad national and international reach serving clients across the U.S. and throughout the world with a team of more than 50 attorneys in various practice groups, including the Business Law Practice Group.
The Business Law Practice Group represents many individuals, associations, trusts, and entities of all sizes from Hawaii and from other states and countries investing or transacting business in Hawaiʻi, who are seeking advice from experienced counsel. The group handles a broad spectrum of business and transactional legal matters for clients, focusing primarily on the following areas:
- Mergers, acquisitions and other change of control transactions
- Entity formation, governance, and exit planning
- Securities offerings (e.g., capital raise transactions, equity incentives issuances, etc.)
- Fund formation and investor relations
- Tax strategy
The group works closely with other practice groups of the firm to address the various needs of clients. Our attorneys and staff focus on each client’s needs in a collegial, cooperative manner. The goal is to work together as a team to be problem-solvers for our clients.
Our skilled multilingual team also specializes in Japanese business transactions and disputes, which includes negotiating and writing documents in Japanese. For local clients who have legal matters outside of the Aloha State, we have affiliations with other trusted international law firms. This allows for joint representation that reaches as far as Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, and South America and gives us the ability to compete with top international firms.
