Indian Law

Nolan, Thompson & Leighton, PLC has been active in representation of clients in the growing area of Indian law for over 20 years.  We have acted to protect the rights of Tribal members, non-Tribal members, business clients and local governments in their dealings with Tribal governments.  We have been admitted to and appeared in various Tribal court proceedings.  We have handled Indian law issues in the Federal courts.  Our successes include:

  • A six figure settlement for a commercial client.
  • We have facilitated the construction of a pipeline across an Indian Reservation by defending against claims in Tribal Court.
  • We have represented Tribal officials in internal Tribal disputes.
  • The firm has presented at continuing legal education seminars in the area of Indian law in Minnesota, Wisconsin and at Yale University.

We can help in navigating the uncertain issues that arise from dealings with tribal governments. There can be strict time limits for the taking of legal action in such cases, so do not hesitate to send us an email or call us at 952-405-7171 for a free consultation.
