Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
As Hong Kong’s largest and longest-established independent law firm, Deacons has considerable experience of resolving the problems that arise in the gaming sector.
With Macau cementing its status as a global leader in the gambling sector, and the betting duty paid by the Jockey Club accounting for a significant percentage of Government revenues in Hong Kong, it is clear that the region’s gaming and gambling industry is in good health. However, in a complex, fast-moving sector, challenges are constantly arising.
Deacons’ solicitors have many years’ experience helping casino owners in the United States, Australia, Singapore, Macau and London, internet gaming companies and other clients within the gambling sector to resolve problems and run their businesses profitably and efficiently. In particular, we can advise on all aspects of dispute resolution and enforcement action, including recovering gaming and gambling debts from defaulters. We also regularly assist with regulatory and commercial issues, including advising on the key laws concerning internet gambling, the advertising of gambling operations and tax related issues.
