An important part of our practice is the representation of our clients in litigation in federal, state and tribal courts, as well as federal administrative boards that have jurisdiction over Indian affairs. On behalf of our clients, we advocate to protect our clients’ rights and interests, including but not limited to: assertions of tribal civil and/or criminal jurisdiction, enforcement of federal trust obligations, gaming device classification, enforcement of tribal-state compacts, assertions of tribal sovereign immunity and the protection of tribal cultural and property rights.
We work with our clients from pre-litigation counseling through all appeals to reach the winning result that meets our clients’ objectives; and we are renowned for our ability to succeed in high-stakes, complex cases. We frequently direct litigation in coordination with larger firms, lending our expertise in federal Indian law and making our legal resources available to our clients. Our formula for success enables us to provide superior service and deliver the desired results.
