At Lionel Sawyer & Collins, we enjoy an extensive practice in gaming and regulatory law on local, state, national and international levels, which involves us in every step of the regulatory process. This part of our practice involves representing clients before municipal and county governments and agencies, state agencies, legislatures, federal agencies and the Congress. On behalf of clients, we are often involved in the rulemaking process as well as dealing with the interpretation and application of statutes, rules and regulations. Gaming and Regulatory Law Department Chair Robert Faiss, Senator Richard Bryan, and Mark Clayton, along with Reno shareholder Dan Reaser (Department Vice Chair) are listed in The Best Lawyers in America.
