We have a wealth of experience advising gaming and casino clients on all aspects of the gaming and entertainment industry.
The gaming industry has experienced exponential growth in Serbia in recent years, particularly in the areas of online and social gaming. This rise in popularity has created multiple revenue opportunities for industry participants and the government.
However, making the most of these opportunities is not straight forward. The gaming industry is subject to complex and ever-evolving legislation and anyone looking to enter the market needs agile, multidisciplinary legal advice.
Whether you are a public or private entity, we have the inside knowledge and expertise needed to help you successfully navigate the industry’s various hurdles and generate higher revenues.
