Enabling Gaming Clients to Obtain Access to Payment Processing

By: wpengine

Steven Eichorn has assisted numerous clients in the online gaming sector with obtaining access to payment processing through drafting persuasive legal opinions and through client advocacy. The legal opinions cover a wide array of federal and state gambling laws.

The format of the legal opinion varies depending on the client’s needs and whether they require a full federal and fifty-state legal analysis. For instance, Steven has drafted legal opinions that were limited to federal gambling laws, and others that addressed both federal law and each state on a state-by-state basis. Additionally, for some foreign clients, the legal opinion has been limited in scope to the Wire Act only because the legal opinion was required in response to a request from a foreign regulatory agency.

Online gaming clients include operators in the daily fantasy sports industry, skill-based online gaming, sweepstakes-style contests, eSports wagering, and other cutting-edge gaming concepts.
