In Memoriam

As we were going to press, attorney Michael F. Nauyokas suddenly passed away. He was on this list as a Best Lawyer in arbitration, employment law (individual), employment law (management), labor law (management), litagation (labor and employment) and mediation. He was recently in the news for mediating the dispute between Gov. Neil Abercrombie and the Hawaii State Teachers Assoc. He recently helped open a library for underprivileged children in Cambodia.
