Serving Native American Tribal Communities

With significant experience in the cannabis and hemp industries, our CPAs and advisors have guided hundreds of U.S. and international cannabis businesses through a very challenging business and regulatory environment. Our team of more than 100 professionals provides our valued clients the full support they need. We understand the unique challenges, risks, and rules that Native American Tribes and their enterprises face related to tribal affairs. We work closely with our tribal clients to help them navigate the ever-changing legislation and operational challenges that can arise when least expected. With a primary goal of improving tribal governance capabilities and structures, our services are designed to enhance revenue streams through enterprise development and strategic partnerships.

Our advisory team develops comprehensive strategic plans to maximize economic benefits, comply with federal guidelines, and enhance the services that Tribal communities provide to their members. Our collaborative approach helps Tribal communities make the right decisions at the right time, which is important to every business, and critical for Native American Tribal Communities.
