BB&K’s Ellen Grover and Josh Newton Discuss American Indian Tribal Sovereignty in Municipal Lawyer Magazine
Best Best & Krieger LLP Partners Ellen Grover and Josh Newton are featured in the November/December 2022 edition of Municipal Lawyer, a publication of the International Municipal Lawyers Association.
