About Carlsmith Ball LLP

At Carlsmith Ball, our history is driven by change. From the founding of our first office in Hilo in 1857, to welcoming the state’s first woman lawyer, to representing Hawaii’s earliest condominium projects, we’ve been a part of the evolving legal landscape over the past 160 years. And we haven’t stopped there.

With nearly 75 attorneys, Carlsmith Ball has offices in Honolulu, Hilo, Kona, Maui and Los Angeles. Our firm is uniquely positioned to represent clients in the Pacific region and beyond. Our collaborative spirit sets us apart. We work together from oceans away to provide counsel to clients in virtually every area of law.

We believe that diversity of thought, experience, culture and geography leads to innovative thinking. It breeds creativity. It encourages our attorneys to rise to the occasion, calling on new approaches as well as refined tactics to deliver quality legal services.

Drawing from a century and a half of history, we’ll continue to lead the way in Hawaii’s legal industry.
