Robins Kaplan Bolsters Their New American Indian Law Practice with Two Heavy Hitters
Robins Kaplan announced today that it will expand its representation in the United States by launching the American Indian Law and Policy Practice Group, with Brendan Johnson, former U.S. Attorney for the District of South Dakota, and Tim Purdon, former U.S. Attorney for the district of North Dakota, enhancing the group with their familiarity and experience working with Native Indians and Tribal clients.
Justice sounds a noble albeit obvious goal for any set of lawyers, and bringing justice to those especially struggling for it sounds all the more noble. As they've said, "Our commitment to tribal sovereignty and self-determination will drive our representations."
This they will do through their experienced litigators Johnson, who has worked in South Dakota's Indian country, and Purdon, who designed an anti-violence strategy for North Dakota Indian reservations.
"Robins Kaplan's American Indian Law and Policy Practice will aim to make a long-term, positive impact in Tribal communities across the country," said Johnson. "Our commitment to tribal sovereignty and self-determination will drive our representations."
"As U.S. Attorneys, Brendan and I worked relentlessly to seek new ways to improve public safety in Indian Country. Now supported by our talented colleagues at Robins Kaplan, we will bring this same commitment and incisive strategic thinking to our private practice work for Tribes and the citizens of Indian Country," said Purdon.
As a premier trial law firm, Robins is expanding their practice into a unique market, bringing the talent and quality they have on the national scene to represent a specialized market.
