UK and Offshore Remote Gambling
We have advised many clients on jurisdictional, licensing and compliance issues and have overseen successful applications for interactive gambling licences in a number of jurisdictions including Alderney, Malta and the Isle of Man. We can assist with the establishment of disaster recovery operations or with the full migration of operations, as required, including where necessary, the restructuring of international online gambling businesses.
In the UK, the remote gambling provisions of the Gambling Act 2005 present considerable opportunities for international operators. We have been closely involved in the development of this law and are ideally placed to advise.
We advised on the launch of, and the numerous legal issues affecting, a leading exchange, including issues relating to General Betting Duty and the Levy Scheme.
