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.
