Lionel Sawyer & Collins, a professional corporation, is the largest private law firm in Nevada. We are a full service, business and litigation law firm with 90 lawyers in our Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, Nevada and Washington, D.C. offices. Our practice includes real estate, employment and labor, healthcare, gaming, litigation, intellectual property, regulatory, utilities, mining, governmental relations, lobbying, legislative, land use, tax, energy, telecommunications, water and business law. We provide value-added relationships that are crucial to both growing and established companies.
With a history of partners coming from powerful state governmental positions, the firm has maintained a bi-partisan relationship with federal, state and local government officials. Among them, Grant Sawyer, one of the firm's founders, was a two-term governor of Nevada and was considered one of the State's most powerful and most popular governors. Most recently, former U.S. Senator Richard H. Bryan (also a former two-term governor of Nevada) joined the firm as a partner and a member of the firm's Executive Committee. He provides expertise in the areas of governmental relations, mining, taxation, international trade, gaming, public land use issues and privacy law.
As a result of our long and extensive involvement in the Nevada legal, political and business communities, we are in a unique position to assist established Nevada businesses, as well as businesses relocating to Nevada. The Firm's client service has been enhanced by the opening of its Washington, D.C. practice earlier this year due to the demands from its clients who desire representation in the Nation's capital. Since its founding in 1967 by Sam Lionel, a respected litigator, and former Governor Grant Sawyer, Lionel Sawyer & Collins has achieved a preeminent position in the State of Nevada, serving clients of all sizes, from individuals and business start-ups to Fortune 500 companies.
