Indian Tribal Nations

Our attorneys are committed to principles of tribal sovereignty and self-determination.  We recognize the broad opportunities and unique challenges of economic development in Indian Country.  

By providing a sophisticated legal practice with creative problem-solving, we maximize opportunities and overcome obstacles to achieve our clients’ goals.  We represent tribal governments and enterprises in a wide range of matters, from governance and jurisdictional challenges to negotiations and business dealings.  

We are skilled at handling complex issues, navigating legal uncertainty to lead our clients through transactions subject to pending or prospective litigation. We also provide general outside counsel services to help tribal governments achieve certainty  and success for their tribal members now and into the future.
