Wise Carter is proud to serve as counsel to the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians in a wide variety of commercial and litigation matters. Our representation has spanned over twenty years and has provided the Firm with the opportunity to work with Tribal leaders and state and local governments, as well as businesses wanting to work with the Tribe.
Wise Carter attorneys regularly handle sovereign immunity and other legal issues particular to Indian tribes, and have assisted the Tribe in establishing numerous joint ventures with private enterprises and in developing and later selling the Tribe’s manufacturing operations in Mexico. The Firm works closely with the Attorney General’s Office for the Tribe to assist with developing and drafting tribal ordinances. We also work with the Choctaw Gaming Commission in drafting and implementing regulations and providing advice regarding compliance with those regulations, applicable federal laws and the Tribal-State Compact.
