Jeff Ifrah’s Washington, D.C. based law office specializes in online gaming, internet commerce and defense of government investigations remains at the forefront of eSports law. Named a top lawyer by Chambers & Partners, Jeff was recently a featured presenter for guests at the second annual U.S. eSports Conference, where he focused on the industry’s top eSports outlets, players, publishers, developers and media firms on how lessons from the iGaming industry can be successfully applied to the burgeoning eSports market.
“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.”
