Director Newton J. Chu, who heads our statewide liquor licensing practice, was again instrumental in drafting and shepherding through legislation that served to streamline and modernize Hawaiʻi’s liquor licensing laws with respect to LLCs and publicly traded companies. HB 1465 was signed into law by Governor David Ige on July 11, 2017 as Act 184. Governor Ige was happy to sign the bill as it simplifies doing business in Hawaiʻi.
For further information about this new law and liquor licensing matters, please give Mr. Chu a call in our Hilo office at (808) 961-0406.
