Bailey Glasser Adds Esports & Online Gaming Service Offering
Washington, DC, August 24, 2020 – The national law firm Bailey Glasser LLP is pleased to announce the expansion of our portfolio of service offerings by creation of the Esports & Online Gaming practice.
Boston-based attorney Carlos Duque will take the reins of the Esports & Online Gaming service offering. We have been advising Esports clients since 2015, with a keen eye focused on ever-changing industry standards during that time.
“This is a unique and burgeoning industry; I am excited to formally offer this service to our clients,” said Carlos. His work with daily fantasy sports (DFS) and Esports clients runs the gamut from general counsel services, capital formation, and compliance. Specifically, this includes preparation of various legal opinions to payment processors, confirming that online gaming operations are conducted in compliance with Federal and State gambling restrictions including the Wire Act, the Illegal Gambling Business Act (IGBA), and the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA).
“Bailey Glasser’s expanding portfolio has provided outstanding support to the clients that we serve in the Sports & Online Gaming industries,” said Marc Weintraub, a partner who heads the firm’s Corporate practice group. “The formalization of our Esports & Online Gaming practice is a natural step in our growth as a firm.”
“My team has been working with Bailey Glasser for a few years now,” said Stu Porter Jr., Founder of Clout Fantasy. Clout utilizes Bailey Glasser for mission-critical advice in the Esports & DFS industries. “From the beginning, I have been impressed by BG’s work ethic and client-first attitude as we worked hand-in-hand to resolve a number of thorny issues. The depth of their legal knowledge in Esports & Online Gaming regulation has been a game-changer as we brought my company through the development process.”
