Land-based gaming

Land-based gaming

The land-based gambling industry is highly regulated, but we  guide clients through all aspects of regulatory and licensing work. We recognise that an operating licence is our client’s single most valuable asset, that it is a privilege rather than a right, and we advise a significant number of the world’s leading land-based gambling operators on all matters relating to their licences.

Our track record in obtaining new casino operating and premises licences for our clients under the Gambling Act 2005 and the Gaming Act 1968 is unparalleled.

We are also frequently instructed to advise on applications for renewals and variations, on change of corporate control applications as well as advising our clients generally in relation to their dealings with regulators.

We act for casinos, bingo operators and betting shops and assist them in developing and expanding their offering, including advising on new concepts, new games, marketing campaigns, external gaming areas and complex automated gaming requirements.

We frequently advise international corporate law firms, private equity firms and banks on gambling licensing and regulatory matters and undertake specialist due diligence. Our corporate support work has included providing advice on the licensing and regulatory aspects of the acquisition and disposal of a gaming business, corporate group restructuring of multinational gambling corporations and venture capital investment.
