Partners Peter Montegriffo QC and Nyreen Llamas at Hassans International Law firm have contributed to the most recent reference guide to global Gaming Law, produced by The European Lawyer Reference Series. The guide is published by Thomson Reuter who supply lawyers around the world with cross-jurisdictional information that is clear, concise and highly practical.
Peter and Nyreen, who advise the vast majority of gaming firms in Gibraltar, and many internationally, were asked to provide a detailed chapter to outline the legal framework relating to gaming and the developments in Gibraltar. The chapter follows a question and answer format to provide essential guidance when conducting business on an international level.
Julian Harris, partner at UK law firm, Harris Hagan and Editor of this second edition which covers 37 other jurisdictions world-wide stated:
“our aim has been to provide a useful broad guide to the legal and regulatory framework for gaming in order to provide a comparison of the varied approaches to this fascinating area of law between jurisdictions throughout the world”.
Nyreen Llamas commented:
“Gibraltar’s first gambling statute was enacted in the 1950s and covered the provision of land-based gaming services; the legislation did not and could not have ever envisaged the provision of gambling services through remote means. With the introduction of the 2005 Gambling Act, Gibraltar positioned itself as a unique proposition in the gaming industry.
This industry is fast developing and the regulation of affiliate service providers is vital in the future of Gibraltar’s continued relevance and importance for the sector.”
