Las Vegas, Nevada, August 14, 2018: Howard & Howard Attorneys PLLC is pleased to announce that veteran gaming lawyer Jennifer L. Carleton has joined the firm’s gaming practice as a partner in the Las Vegas office.
“As our first gaming compliance professional, Jennifer will round out the services Howard & Howard has provided for decades to the world’s most prominent public and private gaming companies,” said Art Rogers, managing partner of the firm’s Las Vegas office. “Jennifer has spent her entire career in gaming, first as in-house counsel for an Indian tribe and now as an adviser to the premier gaming companies around the globe.” Prior to joining Howard & Howard, Carleton was senior staff attorney for the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin, and then a shareholder with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP, counseling clients on corporate and regulatory matters, the licensing aspects of deal structures, reorganizations and finance.
“Jennifer brings critical experience in the areas our gaming clients value most,” said Rogers. Carleton has developed a unique multi-jurisdictional gaming practice, assisting clients with casino operations in numerous U.S. states, advising investors in gaming companies that hold licenses worldwide, and facilitating negotiations with Indian gaming operators. She advises clients on the necessary structure and licensure for transactions involving casino gaming, manufacturing, cash access products, and Indian gaming.
The breadth and depth of her professional experience has given Carleton an insider’s familiarity with the issues that arise when gaming technology and regulation intersect. She has also been nationally recognized for her skill in corporate finance and Native American/Indian law, advising clients on the complexities of sovereign immunity, contract enforceability and regulatory matters.
Ms. Carleton received her J.D., cum laude, from the University of Wisconsin School of Law and her B.A. from Indiana University. She is recognized in Chambers USA and The Best Lawyers in America® for gaming law, and is licensed to practice law in Nevada, Illinois and Wisconsin.
