Dickinson Wright Adds Longtime Gaming Attorney

Jeff Silver, who boasts a career spanning 40-plus years, has decided to leave his role as founding counsel in the Gordon Silver law firm for Dickinson Wright. Silver said he hopes to help Dickinson Wright “enhance its gaming and administrative law profile in Nevada.” The firm also has added Gregory Gemignani and Kate Lowenhar-Fisher, both gaming attorneys.

While at the firm, Silver represented companies such as Dubai World, Grand Sierra in Reno, Century Gaming and Gaming Partners International. Most recently, he represented the Westgate Las Vegas in front of the Gaming Control Board. Dickinson Wright has 400 attorneys at offices in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arizona, Washington, D.C. and Toronto, in addition to Las Vegas.

Silver himself was chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board from 1975 to 1979, and has held executive-level positions at the Riviera, Caesars Palace and the Landmark. Upon joining his former firm in 1984, his name was added to the practice.
