The world of construction is extremely competitive and risky. It takes decades and centuries for companies to make a name for themselves in this industry and many are unable to last that long. One of the leading construction giants in Hawaii is Nan Inc., which was founded in 1990. This means that it has been operating for around 30 years and yet, it has reached the height of success that only a few companies have managed.
During these three decades, it has completed numerous multimillion dollar contracts, some that were awarded by the government and some in the private sector. But, none of this could have happened if not for the relentless hard work and commitment of Patrick Shin, the company’s founder. He launched the company with just one employee and today, they have a workforce of more than 700. During this time, Nan Inc. had to overcome a plethora of challenges.
Indeed, there were legal difficulties that they also encountered and they had a capable legal team that dealt with such situations. After all, there are different types of lawsuits that can be filed against a construction firm and Patrick Shin had taken the time and effort to learn about them. These included disputes over non-payment, quality of the construction, workplace injuries and delays in construction. However, there are also frivolous lawsuits that can be filed as well.
Nan Inc. and Patrick Shin had to face these as well and in most of the cases, they were able to secure a win and also got an apology. As a matter of fact, Patrick Shin prevails in lawsuit yet again this year, which was filed back in 2019 by a former employee for wrongful termination. The employee was an in-house attorney and alleged that the company was indulging in illegal activities, which he had pointed out to the executives, including the president Patrick Shin.
But, the jury’s verdict was in favor of the company and this was undoubtedly good news. This confirmed that his termination by Nan Inc. had been legal and they had not done anything illegal. The company is known for its contribution to the Hawaiian community and Patrick Shin has always wanted to ensure Hawaii’s bright future, which he has been doing by undertaking some of the biggest construction projects there. Plus, he has also been philanthropic and made donations for a variety of causes to help people and the community in general.
