Alongside attorney Bryce Blum, Jeff Ifrah will discuss legal challenges often surrounding esports, including finance, immigration, gaming, gambling and betting, cyber security, business law, advertising, and underage play. Jeff will then provide a general overview of the world’s eSports market, discuss recent government and class action challenges, and provide predictions for the future of gaming.
“I deeply appreciate the acknowledgement by Chambers USA our clients and peers of our trial work within the areas of internet gaming securities, antitrust and advertising,” Mr. Ifrah explained. “Our clients and peers weighed in, giving Ifrah Law outsized representation in this prestigious guide.”
Mr. Jeff Ifrah will welcome Bryce Blum to joing him at this webinar, the founding partner of IME Law and counsel to Unikrn Gaming, a global leader in eSports betting. Sponsored by the ABA’s Center for Professional Development along with the Forum on the Entertainment and Sports Industries, the event is scheduled for September 13, 2016 at noon EDT, and attendees are eligible for 1.50 General Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit hours. List price for tickets is $195, but ABA members are eligible to purchase tickets for $150, and sponsor members for $95.
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.
“This year, eSports events have sold out Madison Square Garden, the Staples Center and Key Arena, and television broadcast viewership often exceeded that of many traditional sports like baseball and hockey. The global games market will generate $100 billion in revenues by the end of the year,” explains Jeff Ifrah. “The industry’s meteoric rise comes with legal, social and regulatory challenges.”
