November 1, 2018, Fellows in the news

Mike McBride III, Oklahoma Life Fellow and attorney with Crowe & Dunlevy, has been elected Executive Vice President of the International Masters of Gaming Law. McBride will continue his nearly decade-long service on the organization’s executive committee and continue to lead, set policy, administrate and carry out IMGL’s initiatives.

“We are delighted to have Mike’s continued leadership and service,” said Jamie Nettleton, IMGL president. McBride is one of only two Oklahoma general members of IMGL, and this role change makes him only the second executive vice president of the exclusive organization. He has served IMGL in previous roles, including first vice president, second vice president, treasurer and director of membership. He also was the 2011 recipient of the IMGL President’s Cup Award for his accomplishments. 

He has a quarter century of experience in gaming, federal Indian law, litigation and complex transactions as a trial, appellate and business lawyer. McBride has tried more than 50 cases to conclusion in federal, tribal and state courts, and as a judge and justice, has adjudicated numerous cases and authored many published decisions. Chambers and Partners has recognized McBride with its Star Individual designation in Native American law for several years in a row, its highest individual ranking. McBride has served as justice of the Pawnee Nation Supreme Court and is the former attorney general to the Sac and Fox Nation and the Seminole Nation.

“Mike’s leadership reflects our culture of service and excellence,” said Timila Rother, president of Crowe & Dunlevy. Based in Tulsa, McBride chairs Crowe & Dunlevy’s Indian Law & Gaming Practice Group, and is also a member of the Banking & Financial Institutions, International and Litigation & Trial Practice Groups.
