Frank Schreck, Director
Frank Schreck obtained his B.A. from Yale University in 1965 and then went on to the University of California Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law where he obtained his Juris Doctorate in 1968. He was admitted to the Nevada Bar Association on 10/14/1968. At the age of 27, Frank assisted his mentor and high school teacher Mike O'Callaghan in his upset election as Nevada's Governor.
One of O'Callaghan's first appointments upon taking office in 1971 was making Frank the youngest member ever appointed to the Nevada Gaming Commission. Frank is also a childhood friend and a key supporter of United States Senator Harry Reid of Nevada.
Frank is a shareholder and practicing attorney at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, a Denver-based firm with offices across the Western United States and in Washington D.C. Frank is chair of the firm's gaming law group and practices primarily in gaming law, hospitality and corporate finance. Frank is regarded as the premier attorney in the field of gaming.
His nearly 40 years of experience includes personally representing premier public and private gaming companies and financial institutions as it relates to licensing matters and all other aspects of regulatory compliance. He has served in leadership roles at the International Association of Gaming Attorneys, including president and chairman posts at the 4th International Association of Gaming Attorneys Conference in Vienna, Austria.
In addition to representing his clients' gaming interests in Nevada, Frank coordinated the licensing of Apollo Management and Texas Pacific Group in the purchase of Harrah's Entertainment, Inc., and Fortress Investment Group in the purchase of Penn International, Inc., throughout the United States. He also has participated in gaming-related matters in Japan, Macau, Puerto Rico, Spain and Great Britain. Frank has annually been recognized as a top gaming lawyer in numerous publications including Chambers and Partners (U.S. & Global) and Best Lawyers.

Frank SchreckSchreck Brignone
Frank Schreck received the impetus to go into gaming law when then-governor Mike O'Callaghan appointed him to the Nevada State Gaming Commission in 1970.
At 27, Schreck was the youngest member ever appointed to the commission, but O'Callaghan had confidence in him, having been his teacher at Basic High School and his mentor through college and law school.
"At that time, law schools didn't have courses in gaming law, because Nevada was the only state where casino gaming was legal, and Nevada had no law school," said Schreck."There was no way to learn about laws regulating gaming , the biggest industry in the state , except through government.So the people practicing gaming law came out of the Attorney General's office, the Gaming Commission or the Gaming Control Board."
Founded in 1968, Schreck Brignone now employs 26 attorneys.Its clients include most of the large resort properties on the Las Vegas Strip, many of which have out-of-state interests as well.Schreck is a charter member of the International Association of Gaming Attorneys, which numbers about 500 attorneys from all over the world.The association has played a part in standardizing regulations for gaming companies that conduct business in many jurisdictions.
Asked about his plans for the future, Schreck said he is "definitely exploring" the possibility of an alliance with another firm."Because of the quality of my clients and the type of work we do, we've been a bright target for firms wanting to come into the state," he revealed.
