I partner with my clients to navigate complex regulations and get business done.
Both Australian and international gambling operators rely on my advice on all aspects of gambling operations, as well as their investments in gambling businesses inbound to Australia and outbound from Australia.
It is my global reputation in this field that sees me strongly sought after to advise gaming machine manufacturers, wagering operators, casinos, social media platforms, online gambling and other various forms of gambling service providers. My advice to these clients includes licensing, regulatory and compliance issues, sports and racing integrity, consumer, advertising and privacy law issues.
My advice to international gambling operators setting up business in Australia extends to preparation of prospectuses and requirements of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. I work closely with these clients in developing their Australian business strategies, particularly in connection with the use of new technologies.
