Betting and Gaming

The Gambling industry, both land-based and online, has seen a rapid rise over the past years throughout the world and also, unavoidably, in Cyprus. Cyprus' accession to the EU and the development of European law in matters of provision of services for gambling, has made Cyprus an attractive jurisdiction through which operators may access the European market.

Our firm has unique experience in the gambling industry. In 2004, acting with the UK specialist solicitor Paddy Whur, we undertook a review of the betting and online gaming industries for the Government of Cyprus, preparing detailed reports and draft legislation for the modernisation of the legal framework regulating these industries. This project has given us extensive knowledge of the gaming world and helped us develop strong ties with local and international industry regulators and participants.
