Facing scrutiny in the United States about its casino operations in Macau, Wynn Resorts Ltd. has bet on Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck to help its lobbying efforts in Washington, D.C.
The Nevada-based casino operator dispatched Brownstein to advocate for it on an unspecified "[f]oreign investment issue before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission," according to lobbying registration paperwork the firm filed with Congress this week. The firm also does legal work for Wynn.
Brownstein shareholder Marc Lampkin and policy director Michael Levy are handling the account. Levy said he met with members of the congressional advisory panel last month about how Wynn addresses law enforcement issues in Macau, the former Portuguese colony that has developed into a gambling mecca after it became a special administrative region of China in 1999.
