Gambling Law

We provide expert advice on regulatory compliance to a wide variety of gambling operators, underpinned by extensive industry knowledge.

Northridge’s team of specialist gambling lawyers has a deep understanding of the challenges faced by online and offline operators in an environment of heightened regulatory standards.

Our licensed clients include betting firms and casinos and we advise them on gambling licence applications, variations and changes in corporate control. We help them to develop fully compliant policies and procedures – providing bespoke staff training where required – and support them through Gambling Commission assessments, investigations and reviews.

We also assist clients that run products such as social gaming, raffles, prize competitions and free draws outside the licensing regime, ensuring they remain compliant and providing assurance to investors and business partners.
