Our attorneys understand the unique challenges facing Indian Country and Alaska Native Corporations, and provide strong legal representation and strategic advice to these clients. 

Indian Country:  Led by one of the country’s most experienced practitioners of environmental Native American law, our team is known for its deep understanding of the regulations and frameworks that impact reservation and Indian trust land. We work to protect natural resources, develop critical infrastructure, protect tribal sovereignty, and enhance tribal governance. 

We serve as outside general counsel to several tribes and advise many others on tribal enterprises involving real estate, development, business formation, transactions, and tax planning. We are recognized for our deep knowledge of the regulations and regulatory frameworks that impact reservation and Indian trust land. We draft tribal codes, provide advice on implementation and enforcement, and counsel tribes concerning governance and sovereignty.

Alaska Native Corporations:  Schwabe supports the missions of Alaska Native Corporations (ANCs), which serve their Alaska Native shareholders by working to maximize their economic growth, protect ancestral lands, preserve their cultures, and enhance their communities.

We advise ANCs and their subsidiaries on a wide range of issues, including corporate governance, business transactions, SBA 8(a), land use and royalty agreements, settlement trusts, tax, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, risk management, litigation, shareholder rights and responsibilities, employment, and labor relations.
