Commercial Disputes and Gaming Rights
Tribes facing gaming rights and other commercial disputes need representation from lawyers who both excel at business litigation and understand the issues most critical to Native American businesses. Our American Indian Law and Policy Practice Group lawyers have the exact kind of in-depth experience demanded by Indian Country commercial disputes. As the former United States Attorneys for North and South Dakota, practice founders Brendan Johnson and Tim Purdon understand the core interests at the heart of Tribal businesses. They use that knowledge and the insights it provides―along with the extraordinary resources of a national trial law firm―to offer results-focused representation and justice to Tribal clients with business and gaming concerns.
In particular, we can help Indian Country clients deal with business problems involving:
- Governmental Entities
- Large Corporations
- National Indian Gaming Commission
- Regional Businesses
- Other Powerful Forces
Whether a dispute poses the possibility of high-stakes, mission-critical litigation or revolves around smaller, more tactical matters, our American Indian Law lawyers will partner with our Tribal clients. We will work to understand immediate and long-term needs and then craft a strategy designed to meet our clients’ best business and Tribal interests.
