Betting, Gaming & Licensing

Our Betting, Gaming & Licensing Group is a leading specialist on Irish gambling and alcohol licensing laws. We provide commercial and practical legal advice to national and international businesses - specifically leading national and international bookmakers, hotel chains, banks/financial institutions, hospitality businesses, casinos, betting exchanges, lottery operators, suppliers of software and gaming equipment. We also advise on court applications for alcohol licences.

We advise not just on the essentials of licensing and gambling law, but on the regulatory aspects and how best to engage with regulatory authorities and the courts. Our strong relationships with police and regulatory authorities help give our advices a more informed quality as to what is, and is not, achievable in the Irish regulatory context.

Our lawyers are members of the International Masters of Gaming Law and the International Association of Gaming Advisors, and we regularly speak and publish on issues of topical interest to a domestic and international audience
