We represent Indian tribal governments and enterprises, Alaska native villages and native corporations and major financial institutions (including investment and commercial banking firms and credit enhancement providers), as well as others doing business in Indian country. Over the last 20 years, Orrick lawyers have served as counsel in dozens of successful tribal financings (both taxable and tax-exempt) for a wide range of projects. Orrick is also the nation's leading bond counsel firm, ranked number one for more than a decade.
Our lawyers are known for innovation in the field, having served as bond counsel on the first publicly offered tribal governmental bonds and having developed borrowing programs for tribal entities that have no recourse or limited recourse to the tribe itself. Our lawyers have also served on advisory committees for the IRS's Tax Exempt/Government Entities division.
We have accumulated our expertise through years of direct experience. Our Indian Tribal Finance Group is nationwide and comprises lawyers from our Public Finance, Banking and Tax departments.
