Gambling services are subject to extensive regulation. Our team advises clients on both highly complex strategic matters through to issues they face on a daily basis.

Our key areas of Legal practice include:

Regulatory & Licensing

Advising on industry specific regulatory regimes, including applications for new gambling-related licenses and approvals, renewals and variations. Advising generally in relation to dealings with regulators, new or varied product offerings and advertising, responsible gambling, social gaming products and virtual currencies.

Corporate & Commercial

Advising on corporate structuring and compliance with specific regulatory requirements, joint venture and shareholder agreements, specialised due diligence (including for investors, banks and other financial sponsors), software agreements, e-commerce contracts, security arrangements (including Personal Property Securities) and privacy.

Competition

Advising in relation to competition and anti-trust laws, including new product offerings, advertising campaigns, development of marketing policies and terms and conditions.

Investigations

Advising in relation to formal and informal regulatory investigations by local gambling authorities, the ACCC, AUSTRAC, law enforcement and other statutory bodies.

Assisting local and international lawyers and attorneys

We assist local lawyers and service providers who do not have gambling law and regulation expertise. We also assist international lawyers and attorneys in relation to gambling law and regulation issues in Australia.
