Christy Hubbard is of counsel in the firm’s Tribal Affairs, Gaming, and Business Transactions practice groups. Her combination of firm and in-house experience has made her a trusted, business-minded counselor and advocate in a variety of transactional and regulatory matters.

With regard to gaming, Christy’s focus has been on sports betting, state and tribal licensing, marketing, database protection, and general legal compliance. She negotiates complex licensing agreements and works with multi-lateral tribal teams to resolve gaming compact issues, regulatory rights, and legislative concerns with government entities. 

Christy has the heart of a teacher and the mind of a trained journalist, which she has used to investigate and resolve both employment and gaming-related claims on behalf of clients.

She served as a law clerk on the Navajo Nation for DNA-People’s Legal Services in Chinle, Arizona and, after meeting her husband there, taught high school English on the Navajo Nation for the Ganado Unified School District. Though she originally went to law school with the hope of working in Indian Law, her practice at Lewis Roca took a turn instead toward intellectual property, brand protection, complex licensing, and employment law.

She left the firm as a partner to go in-house to work for a large national specialty retailer. There she advised the business on marketing and advertising law, customer privacy, store operations, public (disability) accommodation, pet safety, and customer experience. She returned to Lewis Roca to work with a dedicated team on clearing, licensing, and protecting the IP rights of a treasured national product and, when that work ended, she was pleased to finally come full circle and bring her licensing, regulatory, and client relations work to Lewis Roca’s Tribal Affairs team.

Christy is a tireless advocate and she uses her wide experiences in intellectual property, employment, marketing, and gaming law to protect the investments that the Firm’s clients have made in their products, people, and brands.
