Our Gaming Law attorneys represent clients in key categories of the gaming industry, which are subject to various laws and regulations.
We regularly advise clients in all aspects of gaming operations related to sweepstakes and contests. Our Gaming Law Team has clients covered—from advising on how to best structure a promotion as a game of chance or a game of skill, to drafting the official rules and registering with state authorities and ultimately selecting a winner and awarding a prize.
Our Gaming Law attorneys work routinely with charitable organizations to obtain state identification numbers and licenses, develop rules and plans for charitable games, and comply with gaming regulations and requirements after an event has concluded. We work pragmatically to help clients successfully and legally run raffles and raise revenues.
The laws and regulations governing fantasy sports and internet-based games continue to rapidly evolve, with operators needing to comply with developing local, federal and state laws. Online outlets have seen rapid growth in the gaming industry, leading to increased attention for operators of gaming apps or other online games. As the regulatory obstacles of sports betting and online gambling continue to evolve and expand, we counsel and guide clients to make sure their gaming activities remain compliant. Operators can turn to a Phillips Lytle Gaming attorney to make sure their apps and online games run smoothly in compliance with this intersection of laws.
We continue to assist various clients in operating charitable raffles in compliance with New York State’s charitable gaming laws.
