As Scotland’s leading video games team, we are fully immersed in the sector, providing specialist legal support to developers, publishers, artists and investors, against the backdrop of an increasingly complex regulatory environment.
We also recognise that games technology is increasingly relevant to sectors such as healthcare and education, as well as to entertainment. The emergence of esports, AI and the metaverse means that the impact of games will only continue to evolve.
Our team comprises experts in corporate law, IP, commercial contracts, consumer protection and data privacy.
We represent a number of industry heavyweights, including 4J Studios. Our team has acted in some of Scotland’s biggest video games deals. As well as being engaged as the official legal partner of Scottish Games Week, we have supported the UK Games Fund’s innovative ‘DunDev’ programme.
