A multi-jurisdictional gaming law guide was launched on Wednesday at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia 2017. The ‘Global Gaming Law Guide’ is promoted by Lex Mundi, a worldwide network of independent law firms.
The publication combines the expertise of gaming lawyers across 27 jurisdictions around the world, said Macau-based MdME Lawyers in a press release. MdME – one of the firms involved in the project – has been advising a wide range of clients in the gaming sector.
The launching of the guide via the Lex Mundi Network will allow access to the “recognised quality of the network’s member firms in benefit of our clients,” said in a statement Rui Pinto Proença, a partner and head of corporate and gaming practice at MdME.
The new guide is said to address the most common topics of interest and concern to gaming sector clients, with the same 16 questions answered for each jurisdiction. Each chapter of the guide is dedicated to one jurisdiction and written by the relevant member firm.
“Although there are other gaming guides on the market, what differentiates the Lex Mundi Global Gaming Law Guide is not only the in-depth expertise of its contributors but also the fact that it will be freely accessible in an interactive online format with comparative tools,” said Mr Proença.
Wednesday also saw the launch of the ‘Lex Mundi Gaming Solution’, described as an online platform where Lex Mundi member firms will “constantly share information” to create a collective insight about different gaming jurisdictions.
