Firm Overview:  

McDonald Carano is known as Nevada’s law firm for business. The firm has helped shape the legal, business, and policy landscape in Nevada for more than 70 years and many of its lawyers, government relations advisors and professional lobbyists are third and fourth generation life-long residents of Nevada. McDonald Carano stands out as the only state-wide law firm of its middle-market size that has a legacy reputation as one of the prominent founding firms of Nevada’s legal community.

From offices in Reno, Las Vegas and Carson City, McDonald Carano serves local, state, national and international companies, private and publicly held businesses, startups and entrepreneurial entities, investors and investment funds, and high-net-worth individuals. McDonald Carano’s clients also include law firms that do not have offices in Nevada but have clients with business or personal interests in Nevada that need local representation. The firm is also highly sought after for its expertise in helping businesses of all types relocate to and/or expand in Nevada.

Clients value McDonald Carano’s longevity, reliability and practicality in its full-service ability to handle any client’s need – transactions, litigation, regulatory compliance, general counsel services, wealth management, and government relations and legislative lobbying.

The firm is an active and founding member of Meritas, an alliance of commercial law firms in 96 countries worldwide. McDonald Carano remains the exclusive Meritas firm in Nevada. Meritas is an established global alliance of closely connected, yet independent, law firms that each offer a full range of high-quality, specialized legal services. McDonald Carano is also a member of State Law Resources, a network of independent law firms helping clients navigate the process of administrative and regulatory law and government relations. Only one firm from each state and the District of Columbia is selected for inclusion. McDonald Carano is proud to be the sole Nevada law firm in the SLR network.
