Ifrah Law named as Finalist for Award recognizing Exceptional Regulatory Guidance to Gambling Industry
March 18, 2019
Ifrah Law, an acknowledged leader in gaming law, has been named a finalist for the 2019 Best Regulatory Law Firm of the Year Award (North America) by GamblingCompliance, the leading business intelligence provider to the global gambling industry.
Ifrah Law is one of only four law firms across North America to be chosen as a finalist for this prestigious honor, which is one facet of GamblingCompliance’s annual Global Regulatory Awards. Winners of this and other gaming industry-focused recognitions will be announced in London on awards night, May 1, 2019.
“We’re extremely pleased to have been chosen for GamblingCompliance’s list of award finalists because it underscores how highly they regard innovation and precedent-setting in the gaming law arena,” said Jeff Ifrah, founding partner of Ifrah Law, which represents clients in all sectors of the gaming industry. “More important, it sheds a light on the steadfast determination our gaming clients have demonstrated in the face of a very challenging regulatory environment.”
Ifrah Law represents many of the largest gaming companies around the world. The firm and its attorneys have played a critical role in the gaming industry’s most important court cases in recent years, including a suit filed against the U.S. DOJ regarding their January 14, 2019 opinion on the Wire Act, and in Murphy vs. NCAA where the firm submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that sports betting was an issue of states’ rights.
Ifrah Law has been instrumental in the creation of legislative and regulatory frameworks in states that currently permit online gaming and sports betting, and counsels government officials and industry leaders in other states who are considering similar legislation on implementing pro-business measures that encourage the economic benefits that come from regulated gaming – like increased tax revenue and job growth.
Additionally, the firm’s founder, Jeff Ifrah, was the driving force behind the formation of iDEA Growth, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to grow jobs and expand online interactive entertainment business in the United States through advocacy and education.
