We represent casino, gaming and e-sports companies in the full spectrum of their operations, from corporate transactions and real estate finance to license procurement and regulatory advice.
CASINOS AND GAMING
Our lawyers represent casino and gaming clients in strategic transactions including mergers and acquisitions, sales, partnerships, joint ventures and restructurings. We understand and are well-versed in the unique aspects of these transactions and are experienced in technology transfer. Our group has particular experience handling the purchase and sale of “skin” licenses on behalf of casino operators and their online betting arms, including navigating the associated trademark issues.
We monitor the state-by-state regulatory landscape governing retail and online sport betting, casino gaming, i-gaming and daily fantasy sports contests. We work with our supplier and vendor clients to ensure compliance and acquisition of appropriate licenses, and have successfully procured licenses and registrations for sports wagering, i-gaming and daily fantasy sports contests.
