Indian Gaming Finance and Development
Maslon is one of the nation's leading law firms representing developers and financial institutions in the Indian Gaming industry. Maslon lawyers have a keen appreciation of the complex legal and political issues and concerns that arise in all such transactions. We have represented gaming developers since the 1980's in documenting and negotiating development, management and financing contracts with Native American Tribes for the development and management of start up gaming enterprises.
Maslon attorneys have extensive experience in representing financial institutions and investment banks in providing construction and long-term financing to tribes for such projects and other tribal purposes. These transactions have involved development costs and related financing amounts that have exceeded $750,000,000.
We are also intimately familiar with the myriad of federal, state, and tribal governmental laws and regulations which impact and regulate gaming and financing transactions with Native American Tribes, including issues relating to tribal waivers of sovereign immunity, and the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.
