ECIJA has participated in the ‘Forum on European Online Gaming Law 2013’ with Xavier Muñoz, partner and Head of ECIJA Gaming & Betting practice:

2013 will be a year of incredible opportunity for online gaming operators and industry service providers. European member states such as Germany, Netherlands and Sweden are in the process of liberalising their markets, while recent developments in America are also set to further enhance the global value of the gaming industry by opening the doors to online gaming in the world’s largest gaming market.

Lucrative commercial opportunities exist, however there remains a great level of disparity in online gaming regulations, between both individual member states and at a European level. Coupled with the commencement of infringement proceedings against operators who do not hold valid licenses, it is imperative that operators and their business partners fully comprehend the regulatory landscape in order to assess their risk profile and identify the opportunities for lawful commercial expansion.

C5’s 3rd European Online Gaming Law Forum is the only online gaming conference in Europe written directly for the in-house counsel and private practice lawyers dealing with the regulatory and commercial challenges facing the industry. Hear industry leaders share their expertise and real-life experiences on:

– Positioning to take advantage of the commercial opportunities presented by newly liberalised markets in Europe and America.
– Deciphering the current regulatory standards for online gaming in Europe and the inherent risks when operating in a grey market.
– Managing the complexities of multi-jurisdictional licenses.
– Staying one step ahead of the social gaming revolution.
– Utilising online gaming expertise in strategic partnerships with US companies.
– Minimising operating costs through the implementation of legally compliant taxation structures.
– Capitalising on additional revenue streams through the utilisation of mobile gaming.
– Developing commercial strategies to strengthen your online gaming presence.

When: Monday, February 04 to Tuesday, February 05, 2013
Where: Hilton Canary Wharf, London
