Lane Hornfeck has been referred to as a “polite pit bull.”  A creative yet shrewd thinker, Lane distills complex legal and factual issues quickly and sets up the chessboard strategically to provide her clients with needed leverage to resolve disputes efficiently and cost-effectively, where possible, and to protect her clients’ bottom line.  Many of her corporate clients rely upon her strategic advice and planning to guide them through complex bet-the-company litigation and overall risk management. After receiving a favorable outcome, a client recently said, “Lane managed a very complicated real estate matter for me this year, while keeping a constant and conscientious eye on my bottom line. Her knowledge of the law, creative strategy and perpetual responsiveness are a rare combination. The latter of those three alone, is a sparse commodity among accomplished legal minds – in my experience. ALL of those elements combined to make my experience with Lane and all of Shulman Rogers, an ongoing trusted resource and effective partner.”

Lane’s commercial litigation practice focuses on complex business and corporate disputes, real estate and construction litigation, mechanic’s lien litigation, mold litigation, hospitality related representation, finance and fiduciary litigation (disputes involving trusts, estates, wills and probate), antitrust and trade practice litigation, class action defense, appellate litigation, and alternative dispute resolution, among others.

Another client notes, “I couldn’t be more pleased with the work of Shulman Rogers and Lane Hornfeck.  I was involved in some extremely complex litigation over a joint venture dispute that risked the very livelihood of my companies. Lane not only understood and untangled the issues quickly, but we were able to resolve what I believed an unsolvable situation. She is aggressive, smart, fair, and efficient. You definitely want her on your side for any business matters.”

Of Counsel with Shulman Rogers, Lane is a member of the Commercial Litigation Group.  As tribute to her excellent litigation skills, she has been recognized by her peers and has received the AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell and named to the Super Lawyers Hawaii list.
