Business Transactions & Governmental Affairs

Char Hamilton Yoshida & Shimomoto offer a variety of services to our business clients, including the following:

  • Business and corporate entity formation
  • Business transactions

When starting a new business, selecting the appropriate choice of entity is an important decision with lasting ramifications; the type of entity selected will have tax and legal liability implications.  Depending on the business entity you choose, your business may be entitled to varying income tax structures, and executives and partners may be left open to varying levels of liability.  Therefore, it is important to seek assistance of experienced business planning counsel prior to making this decision.

The attorneys at Char Hamilton Yoshida & Shimomoto have extensive experience advising new businesses on the appropriate choice of entity for their new business endeavor and preparing and filing the proper documents to establish the new entity.  While corporations and limited liability companies are the most common business entities, companies can also register as general partnerships, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships and limited liability limited partnerships depending on the particular needs and goals of the business.

Government Affairs

In addition to representing clients with a wide variety of legal needs, Char Hamilton Yoshida & Shimomoto and its attorneys are heavily involved in governmental affairs, particularly in the insurance industry sector.  Our attorneys possess extensive experience in administrative and regulatory practice matters, including appearing in front of governmental agencies on behalf of clients and assisting clients with complying with various regulatory requirements.  Governmental bureaucracy can be time-consuming and expensive for our clients; our attorneys are experienced working with these agencies and assist both individual and business clients with streamlining the process.

Additionally, the firm is involved in legislation and lobbying efforts to change legislation that affects the insurance industry; particularly in the areas of captive insurance where our attorneys lobby for and draft legislation that is both favorable to the industry as well as our clients.
