He represents tribally owned enterprises and other businesses in various commercial, real estate, renewable energy, mergers and acquisitions, and other transactional projects involving Native Nations or tribal land. His transactional experience includes numerous projects in diverse industries, including wind and solar resource leases, right-of-way applications and disputes, government contract and grant programs, corporate governance, securities, tribal code drafting, housing, healthcare provider contracts, taxes, tribal employment rights ordinances (TERO), and land use and cultural property rights, among other matters involving Native American law. Chad also provides general corporate advice to non-profit organizations offering critical services to Native Nations and their members.
