Insurance Defense and Civil Litigation

The firm concentrates in insurance defense and civil litigation -- whether it may be a mediation, an arbitration, an agency hearing, a trial, or an appeal on all islands and in any city, state, or federal forum in Hawaii.  On behalf of insurance companies, we have represented many policyholders in litigation involving motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, products liability, other personal injury and property damage liability, and insurance agent malpractice, and other professional liability.  We are active in representing private individuals, companies and other entities in contract, commercial, real property, business tort, and other business disputes.

Insurance

Insurance Coverage and Regulation

We have broad experience in advising and representing insurance companies with respect to insurance coverage claims and disputes.  We provide coverage and underwriting opinions and advice, represent insurers in insurance coverage lawsuits, and defend insurers against “bad faith” claims.

We also represent a number of insurance companies and organizations before government regulatory bodies and regularly advise such companies and organizations concerning Hawaii insurance statutes, rules and other regulatory matters.

Arbitration Mediation

Alternative Dispute Resolution (Mediation/Arbitration)

Hawaii’s legal community has actively advocated the use of alternative means of dispute resolution, and we are highly experienced in arbitration and mediation. 

Several members of our firm are frequently requested to act as arbitrator or mediator in accident, insurance and other civil claims.
