Outfitters, Hunt Brokers and Landowners

Outfitters, hunt brokers and landowners are central to the success of the outdoor industry and have varied needs beyond the depth of experience of most attorneys. Our Wildlife Lawyers have successfully handled complex litigation and transactional matters for all of these clients.

Outfitters need protection from both the hunters they serve and the authorities that regulate their profession. Regulatory Compliance is complex and varies across the US. Similarly, the qualifications necessary to legally guide a hunter are sometimes unclear. Moreover, outfitters often deal with hunters that can expose the outfitter's operation to liability. We work with professional guides and outfitters to protect them from both angles.

Hunt brokers are a relatively new service to the hunting industry and serve as a liaison between outfitters, landowners and hunters. Like outfitters, brokers should be anchored by solid contracts but brokers should also be aware of the tax and liability implications that result from their operations. Let our attorneys set a solid foundation for your company.

Landowners present unique challenges for hunters everywhere. Sometimes these challenges end in court after drawn out litigation. Savvy landowners however, have used several different mechanisms to ensure that their rights are respected while at the same time, building strong relationships with hunters. Hunting leases, trespass agreements and other arrangements are just a few examples of how a Wildlife Lawyer can help you safely manage your landowner hunting rights.

Regardless of who you are, let us help you find the creative solutions to your most complex problems.
