Expertise Industries

We advise gaming clients across the broad spectrum of their legal needs, including licensing, compliance, employment, real estate, intellectual property, corporate M&A, anti-money laundering, financing, as well as tax and litigation.

Recognized as a leading gaming law firm in the Asia-Pacific region, we represent casino companies, owners and operators, gaming manufacturers and suppliers, sports betting companies, gaming promoters, private equity firms and investment banks, governments and regulators, both in the land-base and in the online sectors.

We have developed our gaming expertise alongside our clients during the unparalleled growth of Macau to become the largest gaming market in the world. By helping those same clients expand their businesses into the Asia-Pacific region we have gained an in-depth understanding of local regulatory requirements, as well as its global and regional industry trends. The need to deliver local knowledge with a global reach has led us to launch the Lex Mundi Gaming Solution.

The Lex Mundi Gaming Solution reflects the collective insight, knowledge and experience of its member firms, across more than 25 gaming jurisdictions around the world. The gaming industry of today is global, and clients’ businesses and investments are spread through multiple jurisdictions. To navigate in a highly-regulated industry through different legal environments is a challenge. By constantly sharing information with each other, Lex Mundi member firms and their lawyers stay on top of industry, regulatory and jurisdictional issues that impact gaming clients’ strategy and tactical approach to their businesses.
