Tribal Affairs

For over two decades Hobbs Straus has worked side by side with tribal councils to advance their causes and further their own development. We have assisted our tribal clients on such varied issues as tribal infrastructure, land use claims and protection, election and campaign law, jurisdiction and intergovernmental relations. From helping a tribe gain federal recognition, to examining whether the federal trust responsibility has been breached, to protecting and restoring land use claims, Hobbs Straus brings its deep experience in Indian law to bear. Tribes may call on us to advocate on their behalf before federal, state, local and tribal governments and courts.
