Grigonis joins a class of 23 new Delegates (8 Japanese and 15 American). The pool of candidates for seats at the 2018 conference was extremely competitive.

Grigonis is a member of Dorsey’s Regulatory Affairs practice group. She has a broad range of experience with issues involving the federal government and Native American tribal governments. She uses this unique perspective to advise clients on federal Indian law and policy, gaming, public-private partnerships, project finance, and government relations.
