Experienced Hawaii Lobbyist Ready to Deliver Your Message
Honolulu, Hawaii Lobbyist Nathan Natori is a registered Hawaii lobbyist. He has lobbied for the largest mutual fund trade association (www.ici.org) for the past 14 years in Hawaii, and has represented a national motor vehicle dealer (www.iaai.com) before the Hawaii Legislature for the past 10 years. Meeting the expectations of such prestigious, national organizations speaks volumes about Mr. Natori’s Hawaii lobbying skills.
Being born and raised in Hawaii gives Mr. Natori a unique understanding of how to frame an argument and persuade Hawaii legislators, in public and in private. On the other hand, he is very comfortable working with national counsel and national government relations personnel due to his mainland educational background (Georgetown University, University of Pennsylvania Law School (Law Review Editorial Board), and University of Chicago Graduate School of Business).
Mr. Natori, as a Hawaii lawyer, has a significant advantage over other Hawaii lobbyists because he not only understands Hawaii law and can help you understand it, but he can also clearly explain the subtle nuances to non-lawyers. His mind is political, and his recommendations strategic. His past includes stints as a successful campaign manager.
Not only does Mr. Natori lobby in Hawaii, he also negotiates with Hawaii governmental regulators to amend Hawaii administrative law or change their interpretation of Hawaii statutory or administrative law. Often it is not the Hawaii Legislature where the issue lays, but with the regulators.
His office is located two blocks from the State Capitol which allows Mr. Natori to easily attend hearings and meet with Hawaii Legislators. You do not end up paying for travel time.
Mr. Natori also bills you on an hourly basis and does not require a large flat fee unlike other Hawaii lobbyists. You pay for the time spent on your matter and no more. If he quickly kills a bill, you reap the benefits.
