Welcome to McDonald Carano

At McDonald Carano, individuality, collegiality, creativity and professional development matter. We are big enough to provide multidimensional solutions and small enough to deliver personalized service. Our culture supports strong professional relationships and celebrates accomplishment and longevity.

For more than 70 years, we have helped shape the legal, business and political landscape of Nevada. We are proud of the people, places and culture that make Nevada special. We cherish our amazing employees, wonderful clients and diverse communities. And we honor the state’s great history, exciting future and our role in shaping both. We look forward to welcoming you to McDonald Carano.

Award Winning Place to Work
