Gaming has been an economic boom to Indian nations all over the United States. While tribal gaming has become a multi-billion dollar industry, it is still in the early stages of its growth and development. As more states look to expand non-tribal gaming, it becomes increasingly important for tribes to take a considered, measured approach to the operation of their gaming facilities.

Their experience advising businesses and corporations in private practice also uniquely positions them to understand not just the legal strategy, but also the business issues present in the operation of gaming facilities. An experienced intermediary, they can present these issues to tribal leadership and members in terms that will help them make decisions in their very best interest.
