Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP partner Kevin J. Wadzinski was recently selected as a Fellow of the Wisconsin Law Foundation.
Wadzinski, a partner in Drinker Biddle’s Washington, D.C., office and a member of the Indian Tribal Governments Practice, focuses his practice on a broad range of federal Indian law issues, including counseling tribal clients and gaming company clients on all aspects of Indian gaming, as well as advising on economic development and tribal business structures. Wadzinski has built a national reputation addressing the impact of federal labor and employment laws on Indian tribes and he advises tribal clients on all aspects of employment law. He has also been ranked nationally in Native American Law by the Chambers USA Guides in both 2008 and 2009, which describe him as “highly knowledgeable” and having “earned the respect of tribes.”
The Fellows of the Wisconsin Law Foundation was created in 1999 to honor members of the State Bar of Wisconsin who have achieved significant accomplishments in their career, and who have contributed leadership and service to their communities. The organization aims to energize its members to continue their efforts in the promotion of justice, advancement of the profession and improvement of legal education. Membership in the Fellows is limited to less than 2.5 percent of the Wisconsin Bar.
Wadzinski was honored with a certificate of membership in the Fellows of the Wisconsin Law Foundation at a dinner November 10, 2009, at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee.
