American Indian Law
As providers of legal services to American Indian tribes, Varnum attorneys recognize that the dramatic rise in Indian economic development has complicated the governance of tribes. Increased interactions with non-tribal parties have brought about a new array of business dealings and commercial litigation matters unique to tribal entities. Dealing successfully with these issues requires knowledge beyond standard business negotiations, common commercial laws or customary civil procedures. It requires legal counsel that understands the history and customs of the individuals involved.
Because sovereignty isn't just about independence - it's about effective self-governance.
