Peter Horovitz advises clients in the areas of Commercial and Residential Real Estate, Corporate, Land Use, and Development, ensuring that his clients are positioned to thrive in Hawaii’s unique regulatory and challenging business environment.
Peter began his career at a large full-service firm on Oahu representing local and national corporate financial clients. Upon moving back to Maui in 2002, Peter’s practice expanded to the areas of corporate representation and real estate development. Of particular note, from 2002 through 2008, Peter assisted with the winding down and sale of approximately 30,000 acres of sugar and plantation land on Maui and the Island of Hawaii. This six-year project resulted in the sale of all properties held by the companies and creation of new entities to own and manage reserved rights including a century old water transmission system running throughout west and central Maui and related conservation properties. Peter’s land-use and development practice has continued to expand since the formation of his own firm in 2008, and he has assisted clients in navigating community, County, State, and federal regulatory requirements in order to bring projects to fruition.
