Real Estate Law


We represent buyers, sellers, developers, and lenders in a wide variety of real estate matters, including purchases and sales, financing transactions, and development projects. Our clients include major agricultural companies, purchasers and sellers of hotel, resort, and commercial properties, long-term owners of Hawaii real estate, and timeshare operators, as well as developers. We maintain close working relationships with planning and regulatory officials of the U.S. Government, State of Hawaii, City and County of Honolulu, and County of Maui, which facilitate our clients obtaining planning, permitting, and other regulatory approvals. We also work closely with the major escrow and title companies in the state to provide smooth and expeditious closings of transactions.


Parties who are contemplating transferring interests in real estate should always contact an attorney. All too often, though, parties fail to take simple precautions. A little time and money spent beforehand, can save thousands of dollars in litigation expenses, and hours of grief afterwards.

Clay Iwamura Pulice & Nervell’s experienced real estate attorneys are able to assist in every type of transaction, and the conveyance of every interest in real estate, from the most complex transactions to the most basic. Please contact Anders G. O. Nervell, Esq. for additional information.
