Holland & Knight’s Native American Law practice distinguishes itself from others in the market in a number of important ways. We are one of very few firms with expertise in advising tribal governments and businesses on complex tax issues and defending them in audits, controversies, and BSA compliance. Our government relations success springs from our vigorous legislative and administrative strategies coupled with our litigation and negotiation skills. Our litigators are known for multimillion-dollar results in trial and appellate courts in areas such as land, water and other resource rights, gaming technology, tribal sovereignty, financing, federal relations, contracts, and jurisdictional disputes. When it comes to development finance, we counsel on complex financing structures for gaming and non-gaming development. The firm also has an impressive record of helping clients navigate federal environmental regulations, rights of way, permits and approvals. In the oil & gas regulatory and transactional space, we have negotiated large complex energy transactions, as well as drafted and prepared codes and regulations.
