Partner Gerald Yoshida Recognized in Captive Review’s “25 At 25” Article

On Behalf of | Mar 12, 2024 | Firm News

In 1987, Goodsill partner Gerald Yoshida was instrumental in licensing the first Hawaii captive. Since then, he has been instrumental in the success of Hawaii as a domicile; in fact, by the end of 2022, Aloha State was the third largest in the world in terms of gross written premium.

Gerald recently gained major recognition for his achievements in “25 at 25: Captive Review’s 25 most influential captive figures since 1999.” As a specialist captive lawyer with Char Hamilton Campbell & Yoshida and Goodsill, he has been a steady part of Hawaii’s growth story in the last 25 years, attracting some of the largest companies in the world to base their captives in the Islands. Gerald has also introduced a number of Japanese firms to the benefits of captive insurance. He is described by peers as the “Godfather of Hawaii Captives” and is always willing to share his knowledge with future leaders.

His current practice covers a broad scope of insurance regulatory and captive insurance matters, where his depth of knowledge and experience allow him to advise clients on a variety of routine and complex insurance arrangements, as well as corporate governance matters. Gerald’s clients range from privately held entities to national and multinational Fortune 500 and Fortune Global 500 companies. He also serves as a speaker and instructor on captive insurance matters locally, nationally and internationally.

Outside of the office, Gerald is a strong supporter of education. He is a member of the Pacific University Board of Trustees and established a scholarship for Hawaii students at Pacific in the name of his parents, both of whom were elementary school educators and principals.
