We have negotiated agreements between businesses and various Indian Nations.

Our attorneys have counseled our clients with respect to jurisdictional issues involving Indian Nations’ sovereign immunity. Additionally, our attorneys have analyzed the validity, applicability and effect of state laws to activities occurring on tribal land. We have also represented financial institutions in a variety of loan closings with Native American entrepreneurs.
