Tanfield continues to hold a long-standing reputation for delivering the very highest levels of niche expertise and specialist advice in gambling and licensing matters.
Tanfield is best known for its regulatory advisory work, covering all forms of gambling, both “bricks and mortar” and online. Advice is particularly sought in matters involving complex legal issues and innovative proposals.
Most recently, Tanfield’s barristers have been at the forefront of a growing interest in the development of products with some of the characteristics of gambling (such as betting), but which may be structured so as not to qualify as gambling.
Members also have experience of conducting and defending civil claims arising out of gambling transactions. For example: claims for the enforcement of gambling winnings; claims alleging loss caused by breach of contract and fiduciary duty, on the part of gambling providers; and claims, relating to derivative contracts such as interest rate swap contacts, which occupy a space on the interface between gambling and financial services disciplines.
Members of Tanfield act for a wide range of operators and promoters. These range from substantial established listed companies, through to individual entrepreneurs seeking to develop a concept for commercial exploitation.
