Our dedicated Betting & Gaming lawyers are recognised experts within the gambling sector. We have significant experience advising operators on licence applications, licensing issues and compliance with gambling regulations in the gambling sector. This regulatory expertise allows us to provide our clients with an unparalleled perspective and deliver advice that is tailored to their gambling businesses.
Our lawyers are drawn from across the firm and advise on matters including M&A, regulatory and compliance, AML, cyber security, data protection, tax and structuring, trade mark and brand protection, sponsorship, advertising and affiliate marketing, commercial contracts, sports law, dispute resolution, IP and reputation management. In addition, we advise on commercial transactions - from standard B2B agreements to acquisitions and IPOs - covering new developments in eSports, crypto-currencies and social gaming, alongside gaming, sportsbook, bingo, poker, casino, slots, lotteries and prize draws. We offer clients a genuine 'one-stop-shop', providing practical and commercial solutions in the most complex situations.
At our core is a team that specialises in corporate transactions and commercial arrangements, a team known for successfully navigating the most complex of matters. The rising levels of regulatory compliance, increased taxation and resultant margin erosion have made consolidation an increasingly attractive option. Our years of experience providing complex M&A, structuring and regulatory advice allow us to guide clients through all phases of their growth cycle.
Our clients include many of the largest operators, performance marketing and affiliate businesses, governments, regulatory bodies, technology start-ups, games and software developers, B2B businesses, investors and financial institutions. We have a comprehensive understanding of the gaming and gambling worlds. Our focus is on protecting our clients against potential regulatory and commercial pitfalls whilst maximising their opportunities through proactive and incisive commercial advice.
