The betting and gaming arena is growing on a global scale. This is primarily driven by the significant advances in mobile app technology which results in fresher markets and new ways of doing business. The UK gambling and leisure market now offers a whole new range of opportunities and challenges, with several local household names being owned now by Far Eastern companies which have advanced the brand image of some of the iconic London casinos in different locations around the world.
The UK has the world's most advanced market for online gambling, and many of the world's largest online gambling companies are listed on the London Stock Exchange. There has been significant change in the UK market recently, with licensing and taxation now being dealt with on a point of consumption basis.
We pride ourselves on having assisted a number of Asian operators on acquiring online gaming companies and fixed table establishments. Our ability to communicate in a language they are more familiar with has been invaluable to helping our clients know their intricate obligations as license operators, both under their licence terms and UK gaming regulations. Our expertise includes advising and acquiring casinos and slots, and advising on responsible gaming measures.
