Gilson Daub Spotlight: Honolulu Shines Bright in 2023

Over the past year, Gilson Daub’s Honolulu office has grown its team and caseload significantly, further solidifying itself as a key legal partner for clients in Hawaii

Gilson Daub’s Honolulu office, under the leadership of partner and managing attorney, Derek Turbin, has seen tremendous growth in 2023 through the addition of notable new clients, cases, and attorneys. A look at the numbers:

  • In 2023, the office doubled its size to four full-time attorneys, all with deep local ties to the community and Hawaii in general.
  • This year, caseloads have increased by 50 percent.
  • Major local clients have signed on to utilize Gilson Daub’s services, such as ProService Hawaii and Paradise Beverages. These new clients join the firm’s well-known existing client base, which includes companies like Hawaiian Airlines and Hilton Hawaii.

Derek Turbin attributes this level of growth to a strategic team that consistently provides quality representation and nurtures client relationships with a focus on community. He says, “Gilson Daub Hawaii is proud to be part of such a strong national firm, while our team also has a unique and distinct focus on all things Hawaii. We provide local representation and a deep understanding of the cultural practices of our state. We also pride ourselves in being ultra-connected – whether that be through constant communication on our cases or active participation in our communities through charitable endeavors or neighborhood associations, we are a group that passionately supports our clients and each other.”

Senior Founding Partner Brent Daub adds, “Gilson Daub Hawaii has a bright future. Unlike other mainland firms that have a ‘satellite’ office in Hawaii without any real connections, Derek has built a strong team of local attorneys who know how to nurture deep-seated relationships, do exceptional work, and close cases quickly and efficiently. I’m excited to see where this office grows in the future as it’s poised for much continued success.”

Other recent highlights of Gilson Daub’s Hawaii office include Derek Turbin being named to Pacific Business News’ 40 Under 40 and numerous successful Department of Labor results, including a “take nothing” case win in 2023.
