Our administrative business law practice can be broken down into two main areas: business formations and business transactions. Both are geared towards helping you take steps today to avoid commercial litigation and commercial bankruptcy in the future.

Business Formations

We work with individuals and small businesses seeking to establish new commercial enterprises. We will carefully identify the different legal structures available and the advantages and disadvantages of each. We help clients understand the tax and liability attributes of the following business formations:

  • Sole Proprietorships
  • Limited and General Partnerships
  • Limited Liability Companies (LLCs)
  • Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs)
  • Corporations
  • Chapter S
  • Chapter C

Our job is to help you find the business formation that works best for your immediate and long-term goals. Guiding you through the process, we will prepare all forms and documents, including articles of incorporation, bylaws, minutes, and if necessary for an LLC, operating agreements for your partner. We will also register your business with the state, taking care of all tax forms, including obtaining an EIN for your business.

Business Transactions

Once you have set up your business, we will continue to provide counsel for all your business transactions. We negotiate, review, and prepare all types of contracts for our clients, including lease agreements, buy/sell agreements, vendor contracts, distribution agreements, employment contracts, franchise agreements and non-compete agreements.

We also work with franchisors and franchisees seeking to set up business operations anywhere on the island of Oahu.
