Kilpatrick Townsend

Tribal FinanceCapital Alignment

To grow their economies, tribal nations need experienced, savvy counsel to help them cultivate sound financial options and access to capital. At Kilpatrick Townsend, our attorneys have worked extensively with a multitude of governments — tribal, municipal, and state — to attain traditional and tax-exempt financing for economic and other development projects. Our team includes some of the top authorities on Native American law and transactional financing, giving us unique insight into the distinct challenges faced by tribal governments when accessing capital and credit and when obtaining safe and secure financing. Leveraging our strong multidisciplinary approach, we routinely offer innovative, broad-based legal advice to resolve disputes and facilitate complex finance transactions, including negotiating and procuring bank financing on various tribal initiatives involving refinancing gaming facilities, casino expansion, constructing tribal administrative buildings, developing and constructing theme parks, and other economic projects. For us, the closing just marks the beginning of our client relationships; our assistance also extends to compliance, renewals, and other issues faced by tribal management throughout the life of their financial relationships and beyond.
