    Tribal & Native American

    The attorneys at Slovak Baron Empey Murphy & Pinkney LLP provide comprehensive counsel to Native American governments and organizations, and companies doing business with Indian tribes. Our Tribal & Native American practice includes:

    • Tribal sovereignty and tribal self-governance
    • Litigation and administrative law
    • Environmental and natural resources law
    • Real estate, hotel and resort development
    • Trust land acquisitions and divestitures
    • Employment law
    • Probate and Estate Planning
    • Relations with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, state and local governments
    • Tribal codes and regulations
    • Allotment issues

    SBEMP attorneys understand that sovereignty is fundamental to the survival of tribal governments. Therefore, we assist our tribal clients in the exercise of their sovereignty as they work to protect the value of tribal assets for current and future generations.

    Our attorneys have defended numerous Indian tribes in tort and personal injury claims. We also have worked on many real estate development projects on Indian trust land for Indian allottees, non-Indians, and Tribes.

    Through this work, we have negotiated with the Bureau of Indian Affairs on long-term business development leases, trust to fee land sales, and supervised the preparation, review and implementation of environmental site assessments – including site characterizations, NEPA and CEQA compliance and issuance of building and development permits.

    In connection with this work, SBEMP has handled complex real estate transactions, addressed numerous title issues, and coordinated with federal and private entities to ensure prompt and proper progress.

    Slovak Baron Empey Murphy & Pinkney LLP has the experience, abilities and resources to provide effective representation for our Native American clients as they work to cultivate tribal assets to the advantage of their communities. We energetically defend and protect tribal sovereignty and jurisdiction from private or government organizations.
