For Jeff Ifrah, this marks the sixth year that the respected lawyer has been named in the category of White Collar Crime & Government Investigations (Washington, D.C.), and his second year of being ranked nationally in the area of Gaming & Licensing Law.
Jeff Ifrah and Michelle Cohen, two prominent lawyers from Washington DC’s acclaimed law firm Ifrah Law, will be speaking at the Winter conference of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS). Together, they were invited to Florida for the January event, where they will discuss the legal issues among online Skill-Based Games and Fantasy Sports. The National Council of Legislators from Gaming States hosts bi-annual conferences that include a select group of expert practitioners from the industry to present trends and information to legislators from all over the country. It is the only organization of state lawmakers that meets regularly to discuss topics regarding Internet gaming. Having become a highly contentious issue in recent years, the NCLGS holds a vital role as a proactive participant in educating legislators of the effects and potential problems and solutions that arise through the multi-billion-dollar industry.

The three presenters will direct the conversation meant to give attendees a viewpoint on current and future legislation that is independent from industry insiders and their clientele. Touching upon all fifty states, they will deliver comprehensive knowledge of each government’s understanding on various gaming channels, clarify how current regulations are affecting companies, and help shape an idea of what the Trump administration will mean to the future of the industry. Also, on the second day of GiGse, Feil will act as a judge on the Launchpad panel, a Shark Tank-style contest where five new businesses will present their ideas to the GiGse audience.
