“Joining Clark Hill is a great opportunity to share my knowledge and experience of the gaming industry with a well-established team that works with some of the top industry names and gaming leaders in the country,” Moran said.

Moran also served as a member and Chairman of both the Colorado River Commission and the Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners.

“I was very proud to accomplish my personal goal of being appointed Chairman of three different state commissions by three different governors,” Moran said.

Moran is a graduate of the University of Nevada Las Vegas and earned his J.D. from Loyola University School of Law in Los Angeles. He was admitted to practice law in Nevada in 1975.
