Gaming has been a part of Nevada’s history and culture long before statehood.
Prospectors hoping to find their fortune came to Nevada to search for gold in the Sierra Nevada. They brought their games of chance with them.
The gaming industry continues to evolve, driven by technology, market expansion opportunities and changes in consumer preferences. As one of the founding firms in the gaming law practice area, Lionel Sawyer continues on the forefront of the industry, serving companies in all market segments, ranging from casino properties to the leading manufacturers of gaming products and service providers in Nevada and beyond.
Responding to the continued growth in online gaming, the gaming department at Lionel Sawyer represented a number of companies in obtaining the necessary licensing and regulatory approvals. Additionally, we work with our local clients who have expanded their operations beyond Nevada’s borders and—in some cases—into cyberspace.
The 2013 session of the Nevada legislature also included some significant challenges for our clients, who benefited from the experience and strong relationships of our government relations team in partnership with our gaming attorneys. Throughout the year, we continue to advise major international and US corporations on their gaming projects and counsel governments in other jurisdictions on their gaming control and regulatory programs.
Why Lionel Sawyer?
Lionel Sawyer has been called a “dominant force in Nevada gaming.” Our firm’s areas of strength include advising on gaming legislative matters and land-based gaming development. We have also been noted for our expertise in issues concerning gaming technology.
