Fieldfisher wins place on Gambling Commission's legal panel
European law firm Fieldfisher has been appointed to the legal panel of the Gambling Commission.
Fieldfisher will sit on the Commission's panel of external solicitors for the next three years and will advise on a broad range of issues including public and regulatory law, commercial and employment. Brodies and Gregory Rowcliffe Milners have also been reappointed to the legal panel.
The Gambling Commission was set up under the Gambling Act 2005 to regulate gambling in Great Britain in partnership with licensing authorities. It does so by keeping crime out of gambling, by ensuring that gambling is conducted fairly and openly, and by protecting children and vulnerable people from being harmed or exploited by gambling. The Commission also provides independent advice to government on gambling in Britain.
Partners Tom Rider and Matthew Lohn from Fieldfisher's Public and Regulatory Law group will lead the team which has extensive experience advising regulators in the public sector.
Tom Rider said:
"We are delighted to have been appointed and look forward to working with the Gambling Commission in the performance of its statutory functions."
