Decades of experience working on American Indian law and policy in Congress, the executive branch and private practice, along with our bipartisan approach, gives us a unique insight into the political, economic and social ramifications of federal and state governmental actions relating to Indian tribes.
Attorneys and advisors in Brownstein’s American Indian Law & Policy Group represent tribes and those doing business with tribes. Effectively engaging the spectrum of parties involved in tribal matters, we serve as a conduit between tribes, Congress, federal agencies and businesses investing in Indian country, working to facilitate mutually beneficial relationships and move projects forward. We understand and appreciate tribal sovereignty and the complex legal, legislative and regulatory issues that arise as part of the relationship between tribes and the United States. From navigating natural resource and tribal water rights challenges to issues related to tribal gaming and tribal self-determination, our team provides trusted counsel.
