Lionel Sawyer & Collins

Represents casino giants

With a large Las Vegas headquarters, a smaller Reno branch and a one-man Carson City outpost, Lionel Sawyer & Collins ranks as the largest law firm in Nevada. (It also maintains another one-man operation in Washington, D.C.) Founded in 1967, the firm operates three main departments -- litigation, business, and gaming and regulatory -- but also specializes in such areas as real estate, employment and labor, health care, intellectual property, utilities, mining, lobbying, legislative, land use, tax, energy, water and telecommunications. As the state's largest firm, Lionel Sawyer, of course, has a particularly Nevada-centric orientation. The firm's gaming practice, for example, is the largest in the world. On a related note, Lionel Sawyer also strongly emphasizes lobbying and governmental relations. One of the firm's founders, Grant Sawyer, served two terms as governor of Nevada. More recently, another former two-term governor of Nevada (as well as a former U.S. senator), Richard H. Bryan, joined the firm as a partner.
