Gaming & Sports Wagering

The gaming industry is undergoing a massive expansion in Pennsylvania and nationally. With numerous states deciding to legalize or expand existing state gaming laws, and with more states likely to follow suit, the industry will continue to grow and expand. As the industry flourishes, such as with the recent proliferation of online sports wagering, iGaming, esports, and video gaming terminals, the number and complexity of legal issues will increase in kind, as will the need for experienced and reliable legal representation.

The diverse backgrounds of experience at McNees, a full-service law firm, allows the gaming practice to advise and guide clients on the many issues that occur in the gaming industry.
