DENVER (PRWEB) October 17, 2016
Shareholder Loretta A. Tuell, of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, was recognized for her leadership in Indian Country gaming during this year’s Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas. Tuell is a member of Greenberg Traurig’s American Indian Law Practice and Global Gaming Practice. Tuell focuses her practice on American Indian law, governmental law and policy, and gaming matters.
Tuell was recognized by the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) during the annual Tribal Leaders’ reception. In recognition of her contributions, NIGA Chairman Ernie Stevens presented Tuell with a turquoise squash necklace. NIGA is an inter-tribal association of 184 federally recognized Indian Tribes united with the mission of protecting and preserving tribal sovereignty and the ability of Tribes to attain economic self-sufficiency through gaming and other forms of economic development.
“Loretta’s broad background and commitment to Native American economic development through casino development, operation, and gaming is extensive,” said Jennifer H. Weddle, co-chair of the American Indian Law Practice. “She understands the future of the gaming industry on Indian lands and has the credentials that make her not only a conduit, but a leader in the field.”
For more than 20 years, Tuell has worked in the arena of federal Indian law and policy. She has devised strategies, executed legislative advocacy, developed national policy, and advocated before the U.S. Congress, the White House, and federal agencies such as the Department of the Interior, the National Indian Gaming Commission, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.
