Mr. Laser Beam

In conclusion:

Gowron became high chancellor by "klingon law and tradition" aka he is the legally elected (by the nobility, not the masses) leader of the klingons (there is no klingon rulling dynasty).

Picard, a starfleet captain, was heavily incolved in the process as arbiter of succession - meaning he did not refuse to take part in the proceedings;
Since then, the federation treated Gowron as the legitimate leader of the klingon empire in its dealings with the klingons aka the federation recognised Gowron as the legitimate high chancellor.
