As opportunities for recovering lost lands through court actions diminish, many tribes are undertaking efforts to reacquire their lands through open market purchases, or through cultural access and conservation easements, and similar legal instruments. We assist our clients in land acquisitions, negotiating natural and cultural conservation easements, and preparing trust applications for lands situated within and outside of reservation boundaries. The firm represents American Indian tribes in litigation and negotiation to recover lands that have been lost by unlawful means and in settlement efforts to resolve such claims out of court.
