Dickinson Wright's Gaming Practice Featured in Casino Enterprise Management

April 6, 2015
In the latest issue of Casino Enterprise Management, Dickinson Wright’s gaming practice is highlighted in the article “Leadership. Experience. Results. Firm Enhances Gaming Practice”. The article focuses on the firm’s efforts to continue to bolster its growing gaming practice through a recent expansion in Nevada by adding three Nevada-based gaming specialists: Jennifer Gaynor, Greg Gemignani, and Kate Lowenhar-Fisher.

Dickinson Wright’s gaming practice has more than 30 lawyers focusing on a variety of areas, including regulatory, tax, finance, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, human resources, trademark, patent, copyright and litigation. Bringing aboard the three new gaming specialist attorneys strengthens an already deep bench and underscores the firm’s commitment to serving an increasingly global industry, Robert Stocker, who leads the gaming practice, said in a recent interview.

“I think we’re the first practice really focusing on being truly an international gaming law firm. We think we’re there already, but we keep building on it,” Stocker said.

Because of the manner in which Nevada has set the bar for gaming expansion and regulatory evolution, it has paved the way for firms such as Dickinson Wright, said Toronto-based gaming lawyer Michael Lipton.

“Our task has been made easier from a perspective that we espouse the gold standard with the recognition that we are of an international caliber and we offer these services on an international basis and have developed a very strong profile, a network of clients, in relation to people who not only want to come to North America, but also people who are from North America who want to go out to various areas throughout the world,” Lipton said. “We continue to grow and develop that particular practice. Las Vegas is the mecca of the gaming world. It’s the mecca from a legal perspective, and with the addition of these three lawyers, we think that we have been able to establish a new gaming law force here in Nevada from an international perspective.”
