Barnhouse Keegan Solimon & West has extensive experience in tribal economic development and our attorneys are well versed in the competitive tax and regulatory advantages of doing business in Indian Country.
Our client portfolio in this area is broad and continually growing. Among our success stories is our work with a tribal economic development enterprise on a commercial loan for a hotel project and a tribal gaming enterprise to secure financing for several of its gaming operations.
As general counsel to tribal gaming enterprises, the firm drafts and reviews contracts, advises on regulatory compliance issues, and resolves personnel, vendor and other business matters. We also assist in taking land into trust for gaming purposes; the negotiation of gaming-related agreements, including management, development and financing contracts; and with resolving tribal-state gaming compact issues.
We act as general counsel for a variety of native and non-native enterprises, both for profit and not for profit, providing legal advice and representation. Our attorneys appear on behalf of our clients before federal, state and tribal courts, agencies, and legislative committees. We attend meetings of councils, governing bodies, and other groups whenever needed.
