Gabe Galanda, Bree Black Horse Spotlight Local "Lawyer Ethical Quandaries in Indian Country"


Yesterday, at the 16th Annual Northwest Gaming Law Summit, Gabe Galanda and Bree Black Horse engaged in a lively discussion with a packed room about the ethical implications of quandaries in which tribal attorneys might find themselves.

Gabe and Bree used various hypotheticals about tribal faction, disenrollment, and other internal disputes involving tribal in-house and outside attorneys, based on things that have actually transpired in Washington Indian Country in recent years. Download their slides here.
