We are one of the largest dedicated global games teams providing complex legal and commercial solutions that enable our clients to innovate and make bold moves in an industry where agility and evolution are essential. We also have a thriving gambling practice and regularly advise games publishers and platforms on the gambling regulatory issues that arise in games.
With specialist in-depth sector knowledge, we help clients successfully navigate risks and challenges, from regulatory scrutiny and protection issues to monetization strategies, to game development and launch. We work with major brand owners globally, including in North America, Europe and Asia.
Over recent years, several models have evolved through which to earn revenues from games. These include the traditional boxed copies and 'pay per download' models, in addition to the more recent (but now common) use of in-game purchases and adverts. It is important to consider the legal implications of the different monetisation options as part of the development process.
