“Everyone there was professional, personable and knowledgeable. I have no hesitation recommending them.”
— Client feedback, Chambers USA
The gaming industry is among the most highly regulated in the United States and rapidly growing. It draws considerable government interest and media attention on a multijurisdictional level. Because of this increased enforcement activity, it’s critical that gaming companies and their partners understand how to minimize their risks in order to take advantage of continued expansion. This view has been enhanced by the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in Murphy v. NCAA, et al., allowing legalized sports betting.
Our gaming attorneys know the ins and outs of the gaming and sports wagering industry and have significant experience in representing well-known casino operators, Native American gaming interests, gaming equipment manufacturers, sports betting companies, racing and wagering operators, internet gaming operators, fantasy sports companies, skill gaming operators, vendors, and others that invest in, or provide services to, the gaming or racing industry. Our clients benefit from our comprehensive approach that draws upon the talents of attorneys from other disciplines such as corporate governance, labor and employment, regulatory compliance, and litigation, among others. Whether involving the development, acquisition, sale, taxation, or management of gaming operations, we understand the legal implications that arise and guide our clients through every stage of development to take advantage of opportunities and mitigate risks.
We also assist our clients with licensing, permitting, compliance, and the handling of complex confidential investigations and regulatory proceedings. We counsel clients on the regulatory and business implications of financing, M&A, and restructuring, and advocate for our clients in all types of securities matters, intellectual property rights disputes, and civil and criminal investigations.
