Members of our corporate finance, commercial and regulatory teams were again able to draw on our in-depth knowledge and experience of the gaming sphere to provide a fully integrated and seamless service to our clients.”
The transaction was led by Corporate Finance Partner, Alex Latner and Associate Director, Gareth Jones, assisted by Finella Hartono and Olga Shiryaeva. Mimi Curran led on gambling regulatory matters.
