The case that changed me

Head of Addisons gambling law team, Jamie Nettleton, tells the Law Society Journal about a case that changed the gambling market in Australia (and his career) forever.

The case involved a challenge in 2008 to the validity of laws made by the Western Australian government targeting the gambling services being provided by Betfair.

“For me, this case was a matter of realising the potential of the Internet at its cusp – that e-commerce would affect our lives and how, from a legal perspective, it would be regulated particularly in areas like cross-border gambling.”
