The globalisation of law and business together with fast-paced technical development has caused a boom in the online gaming market over the last decade. We have assisted the major gaming operators and tech providers with a full range of legal advice for more than ten years. Moreover, the gaming market is closely linked to sports and the ongoing commercialisation of the sports market.
