9:00am Legal Frameworks Workshop: Doing Business (While Staying Compliant) within the Emerging eSports Industry

You can pay handsomely for advice from the two most respected lawyers
in iGaming today — or you can attend this intimate workshop.
The choice is yours.

This three-hour interactive workshop, led by leading gaming attorneys and business advisors Jeff Ifrah and Bryce Blum, represents a unique opportunity for eSports company owners, executive and investors. The largest and longest-standing gaming companies in the world have benefitted from the strategic guidance of Jeff and Bryce, and for three hours, in an intimate setting, you can too.

Trial attorney Jeff Ifrah and business attorney Bryce Blum will lead participants through a detailed look at the top 6 areas of legal vulnerability for eSports companies, with practical advice on how to mitigate risk and increase the security and value of your company. To illustrate his advice and recommendations, Jeff draws on his nearly 20 years of experience advising the world’s biggest players in iGaming and internet poker. This workshop will be interesting, engaging, comprehensive and focused on the issues that risk the future of your company.

We predict that this workshop will conclude with every participant on the phone with their executive team, making changes that will mitigate the threat of future government investigations, litigation and class actions.

Top six legal threats covered include:
– Real Money and Skin Betting
– Cyber Security and DDOS Attacks
– League and Competition Infrastructure
– Player Contracts and Broadcasting Rights
– Advertising and Endorsements
– Cross-border Issues
