Rose Joneson Vargas (“RJV”) provides commercial and corporate representation for American Samoa, U.S., and international clients.
Due to American Samoa’s status as an “unincorporated, unorganized territory of the United States,” our home has a highly unique legal, commercial, and political environment. With more than 20 years of experience and the territory’s largest law practise, RJV helps clients navigate that environment so that they can concentrate on their business without wasting time or resources.
In addition to providing our clients with the full range of legal services needed to get business done in American Samoa, RJV often serves as an essential partner in coordinating legal and commercial strategies outside of American Samoa.
Within the South Pacific (including Australia and New Zealand), RJV is an active member of the Samoa Pacific Lawyer Alliance and the Pacific Legal Network.
RJV also has a strategic relationship with Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, and often works with DWT’s network of 500 attorneys in the USA in Seattle, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. to provide clients with appropriate expertise to address complex, multi-national legal matters.
