Our Gaming practice is supported by lawyers from the firm’s global offices who work cooperatively to provide regulatory and political solutions for clients in the Gaming industry. Our solution-driven Gaming practice is knowledgeable about the issues facing the highly regulated and scrutinized gaming industry. Our clients include publicly traded, government-controlled and privately held companies, as well as individuals and associations of Native American tribes.
Our extensive experience advising on the regulation of Indian tribal gaming under both state law and the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act includes drafting and negotiating tribal gaming compacts and ballot measures to advance tribal gaming interests. We have been engaged by Indian gaming associations to draft ballot measures extending gaming compacts and by tribes to draft a statewide ballot initiative to clarify the status of their gaming activities and to advise on potential ballot measures. We have also counseled tribes on other gaming-related matters, including proposed federal legislation and actions of the National Indian Gaming Commission, local developments, election law and federal lobbying laws.
Drawing on our considerable e-commerce and payments experience, Mayer Brown advises on the unique legal, regulatory and operational issues facing virtual gaming enterprises. We have represented several leading Internet casinos, the InterActive Gaming Council (the global trade association for the online gaming industry) and intermediaries providing consulting, technology and payment solutions to the online gaming industry.
