Reno is still a small enough town where people know each other and work to ensure that economic development initiatives support the local economy. Reno and Lake Tahoe are also top destinations because of the region’s natural beauty that provides year-round reactional opportunities for skiing, golf, hiking, fishing and swimming. As a result, businesses benefit from the continued revenue stream provided by tourists. Additionally, Reno is considered the hub for advanced manufacturing, technology and e-commerce and provides beneficial tax incentives for businesses to prosper.NNBW: As a local business owner, why do you feel it’s important to give back to the community?

Lewis Roca manifested this tradition early on in cases such as Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966), in which John P. Frank, John Flynn and others represented (pro bono) Ernesto Miranda in the landmark case giving rise to “Miranda Rights.” Lewis Roca actively encourages lawyers and staff to act as community service leaders — by helping nonprofit organizations, pro bono programs and civic groups or initiatives that enrich the lives of people throughout Reno.
