The unique rights of Native American sovereign nations provide entrepreneurial opportunities for tribes to expand their business interests, from individually operated on-reservation retail stores, to tribal-owned multi-million dollar gaming facilities and operations. Engaging legal counsel that is experienced in Native American Law, is critical to achieving the best possible outcome for tribal-owned enterprises.

The attorneys in our Native American Law Practice Area understand and respect the unique relationship between Native American tribes and the United States Federal Government pertaining to the many treaties, trust doctrines and self-determination laws, and are committed to working with the tribes to ensure that opportunities available to them by law are protected, and applied to the fullest possible benefit of the tribes.

HSE attorneys practicing in this area are skilled in many legal disciplines and have hands-on experience addressing the legal issues that can arise when tribal nations and/or their wholly owned businesses take part in commercial enterprises.
