As Native American tribes continue to develop economic opportunity both on and off-reservation, business transactions associated with this effort become more complex. Fredericks Peebles & Patterson LLP can help organize tribally-owned corporations to provide the correct structure to not only address the needs of the current business environment but to uphold the unique jurisdictional status of the corporation.
The firm has provided representation and consultation for a variety of business initiatives throughout Indian Country. We have direct experience with the set-up and launch of tribal economic development entities including retail, wholesale distribution, gaming and other diversification of tribal economies. Our economic development professionals can assist tribes with all aspects of developing and structuring these business entities for success. That also includes the legal documentation, licensing, leases, contracts, reporting and taxation issues that may be present with the operation of the businesses.
Fredericks Peebles & Patterson LLP not only works at the reservation level but also interacts with local and federal agencies, the U. S. Congress and other organizations to protect and enhance tribal economic rights and privileges.
