Tailored Legal Solutions From An Experienced Attorney
Legal problems demand solutions. If you or your business face a difficult legal challenge in the areas of real estate, commercial or construction litigation, I can help you find the right solution for your situation. My name is Scott Arakaki, founder of Scott C. Arakaki, Attorney at Law, L.L.L.C. I have over 20 years of experience helping clients throughout Hawai’i. For me, every client is an important relationship. I will take the time to get to know you, your business and your legal goals so that I can help you realize the best outcome possible for you.
Finding Answers To Real Estate Law Issues
Real estate projects are often a large investment for those involved. Everyone has an interest in seeing things go smoothly. A skilled attorney can help make sure that happens. And if disputes do arise, you need that attorney to fight for your best interests. I am widely recognized throughout Hawai’i for my knowledge and experience with real estate law, and I can help you with a wide range of legal issues, including:
- Partitions and quiet title claims
- Boundary and easement disputes
- Professional negligence and licensing issues
- Environmental claims
- Residential evictions (Landlords only)
- Commercial leases and evictions (Landlords only)
These are just a few examples among the many disagreements that may lead to litigation. If you wish to discuss whether I handle the type of dispute you are currently involved in, please contact my office.
Resolving Commercial Disputes
You hope that you never have to worry about litigation in your business, but unfortunately, most companies face some sort of legal dispute in the course of business. When that happens, I can help. I assist Hawaiian companies with a full range of business conflicts, such as:
- Breach of contract and breach of performance
- Breach of fiduciary duties against officers and directors
- Unfair and deceptive trade practices
- Fraud and misrepresentation
I also advocate for clients impacted by construction defects. Whether you are the owner, contractor or subcontractor on a building project, you will need an experienced lawyer if a party discovers or alleges a defect.
No matter what type of matter you face, I will guide you through all your legal options so that you can choose the path that works best for you. Not every case must go to trial, although I am certainly prepared to do that, when appropriate. I will always seek practical solutions that work for you, such as negotiated settlements or alternative dispute resolutions such as mediation or arbitration.
