Advances in technology are driving transformational change in the video games industry, particularly with the rise of online and mobile gaming, esports, AR, VR, streaming technology and social media. 

One of the most exciting things for us over the last few years has been to see how the type of work we do for businesses like yours is constantly evolving. We have been advising video games businesses on their work in developing the metaverse (or their own version of it); many are exploring tokens and blockchain; and the Online Safety Bill, hot on the heels of changes to data regulation, is posing a range of challenges to games companies. Meanwhile, the esports ecosystem is continuing to mature and posing novel regulatory and commercial challenges and opportunities. We have been ahead of the curve on these developments as and when they occur, meaning we are particularly well-placed to advise you on the latest (and upcoming) changes to your industry. 

Whether you are a large games publisher, developer, finance company or start-up, you will benefit from the depth of our sector specialists and international coverage we can offer you in key games markets combined with the support of the wider firm. Whether through our top-tier data protection team, M&A expertise, brand protection practice or through the knowledge we have in technology and also sport, we’re able to support you with a truly full-service yet highly specialised offering.

We’re passionate about the video games sector, so we provide regular commentary on issues affecting the sector on our MediaWrites blog. We’re here to help you, so please feel free to reach out to us.
