Gaming Legal Services


LET LEGALESE DO FOR YOUR LEGAL NEEDS WHAT MUSHROOMS DO FOR MARIO

Whether you’re a huge, successful gaming company, a one-man-show with an idea, a dream, and a PC, or a streamer trying to be the next Shroud or Pestily, we’re not here to judge. But we are here to help.

Your tabletop game, roleplaying game, video game, or streaming content constitutes valuable intellectual property that you need to guard like you’ve taken an arrow to the knee. You’ll need to engage investors, hire employees or independent contractors to create content or assets, potentially enter into development agreements with gaming houses, get your game registered with and rated by the Film and Publications Board (FPB), and what the heck does “publishing” mean anyway?

We can provide you with the guidance, agreements and registration services that you need in order to navigate the legal complexities of the gaming industry. We speak the lingo (did you see that Skyrim joke up there? That doesn’t just happen), we know that you have a budget, and we’re excited to get you going. Our team of commercial, regulatory and labour law specialists is fully equipped and experienced in creating legal solutions that fit in with your needs, at a price that doesn’t rake you over the coals.

Finally, you can sleep peacefully at day knowing that your team of lawyers have your back.
