Sports Betting Data Company Licensing and Preserving Commercial Contracts

By: wpengine

Genius Sports contacted Ifrah Law to assist with its licensing process in New Jersey and
Mississippi in relation to its sports betting business. The company provides sports betting data
to sports books all over the world and is seeking licensure in New Jersey and Mississippi.

Ifrah Law assisted with the licensing process, including reviewing applications and disclosures,
advising on proper disclosures for corporate officers and the various business entities, and
working directly with regulators on the licensing process. We were successful in securing
approval for operations in New Jersey while the investigation was underway.

The firm also assisted with petitioning the Mississippi Gaming Commission for approval to begin
offering certain sports betting products prior to finalization of the license application, thus
preserving the company’s commercial contracts.
