The firm currently acts for some of Canada’s most promising, emerging eSports companies and related platforms.

In addition to providing direct legal advice, we are frequently called upon to project-manage or quarterback the various legal needs of our clients in high-growth sectors such as eSports due to their global nature and intersection with various jurisdictions and areas of law.

The firm’s current eSports experience stems from experience with a range of sports and media-related businesses as well as the emergence of digital platforms, gaming and the token economy. The firm represents sports leagues and teams such as the newly formed Canadian Premier League (soccer), The Sudbury Wolves Hockey Club, The Sudbury Five Basketball Club and has facilitated investments into or the acquisition of sports or eSports franchises.
