Gaming solicitors (gambling & non-gambling)

Gaming and leisure businesses need lawyers who understand the regulatory and commercial environment in which you operate across multiple jurisdictions. You also need advisers who are up to speed with the ever-changing influence of digital technology within the industry.

Our specialist gaming lawyers provide a fully integrated IP/IT, regulatory, licensing, corporate and commercial contracts service. We operate a worldwide international service which involves our partner law firms located in most key jurisdictions.

We have clients operating in both the online gambling environment and land-based gambling environment. Due to the nature of the industry, many operate across different countries, continents and legal jurisdictions.

Specifically, within the gambling industry, we advise machine manufacturers, operators, distributors, game designers, funders, gaming arcades, bingo operators, sports betting companies, casino owners and operators and investors.

Our involvement in the TV and entertainment sector also means that we have particular expertise in the licensing of media content for use in both online and land-based gaming. We frequently advise major gaming businesses on their use of IP and image rights including multinational media outlets such as Disney, Endemol and Warner Brothers.
