Lenor practices in the areas of federal Indian law, tax, tribal election representation, governance, gaming law, tribal financing and business law.
Lenor brings a wide range of experience in gaming and regulatory matters, complex business transactions, finance, tax, governance and other areas critical to tribal clients. These areas require special understanding of tribal immunity and law principles as applied to a sovereign nation. Along with the other members of the firm's Native American Law Practice Group, she serves as general and special counsel to tribes and tribal entities, represent tribes in gaming-related matters and provides advice and support to in-house counsel.
Lenor and her partners have been on the cutting edge of obtaining favorable tax solutions for beneficiaries of tribal minors' trusts and for tribal members participating in tribal housing and other social benefit programs. In one significant case, Scheffler and her partners successfully argued on behalf of a tribal minor's trust fund, receiving a very substantial monetary award. She has also assisted in developing programs for investing tribal funds, educational assistance for tribal members and sophisticated financing for tribal projects.
