What makes the firm’s nomination stand out is the fact that the inaugural award ceremony marks a first in North America. The eGR Awards are traditionally hosted in European countries to reward the excellence of the region’s extensive gaming industry. However, acknowledging the growth of online gaming in North America, eGR decided to organize its first-ever North American ceremony in 2015. On Monday April 20, at The Bently Reserve Banking Hall in San Francisco, the industry’s top online gaming operators and suppliers will celebrate the achievements that took place in the past twelve months, including more operators joining real-money gaming (RMG), consolidations within the social gaming sector, and the rise of fantasy sports. As legal firms and activists such as Ifrah Law contributed to the current success of North America’s online gaming sector, they too will be honored for their innovation, excellence, and dedication to best practices.
Specializing in e-commerce, digital media, interactive entertainment and sports, in addition to its other highly successful practice areas, Ifrah Law has been one of the biggest supporters of the iGaming industry since day one. Founding partner Jeff Ifrah is a staple guest at iGaming related events, including last year’s North American Global iGaming Summit and Expo (GiGse) in San Francisco and the annual iGaming North America Conference and G2E Global Gaming Summit in Las Vegas. Ifrah and his team advise online casino operators in the U.S. on potential class action lawsuits and provide their expert opinions through interviews as well as the firm’s blog, IfrahOniGaming.com.
