Gaming, which includes activities such as casinos, racetracks, and lotteries, is regulated under a combination of federal and state laws. States that permit such gaming usually have a commission established to oversee the regulation of the industry, such as licensing of those employed in the gaming industry. States that permit casinos and similar forms of gaming often have strict zoning regulations to keep such establishments away from schools and residential areas. Gaming establishments on Indian reservations must be in compliance with the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act and any other tribal gaming regulations that may apply.

If you operate a gaming facility or are planning to, you would be wise to consult an attorney specializing in gaming law. A gaming attorney will help you navigate the complex regulatory hurdles and help you limit potential liabilities.

What a Gaming Attorney Does

Gaming attorneys typically work with casino owners, lottery operators, and other entities involved in gaming operations. They represent clients before state and local gaming regulatory bodies, as well as the National Indian Gaming Commission and other federal entities. Gaming attorneys also work with clients on other issues related to gaming operations, such as financing, taxes, tribal administrative matters, leases, and intellectual property rights.

Gaming attorneys also represent their clients in litigation. Since gaming is a constantly changing area of law, retaining a lawyer is the best way to stay ahead of the curve.
