Gambling lawyers

The gambling industry is constantly in a state of change. While regulatory liberalisation is creating new opportunities in some jurisdictions, tightening legislation is closing down avenues in others. Our deep knowledge of the sector allows us to advise our clients on how to recognise, protect and optimise their opportunities within this shifting landscape.

Our gambling practice comprises lawyers drawn from across the firm, including our Commercial & Regulatory, Corporate, Tax, Dispute Resolution, Financial Services, EU & Competition and Intellectual Property practices and our expertise extends to all gambling products including betting, gaming, lotteries, prize competitions and promotions, both remote and land-based.

As well as years of experience in advising on gambling products, we have market leading financial services expertise which underpins our advice on payments issues and anti-money laundering.

With our experts across a network of 42 countries and long-standing relationships with local counsel in other jurisdictions, we are well placed to offer advice as new licensing regimes are introduced or legislation changes or on cross-border M&A. We can advise on the best jurisdiction for a client from both a regulatory and tax perspective. Whether a client wants to establish a new company, obtain a licence or needs market leading gambling tax advice, we provide a one-stop service.
