Personal

Jeff Ifrah advises online gaming and sports betting companies, affiliates, and investors on compliance, licensing, and transactional matters, as well as in enforcement actions and white collar litigation. The growing online gambling industry is spawning multiple public companies valued in the hundreds of billions of dollars. The valuable data assets collected by these platforms offer ripe opportunities for M&A. As investors must comply with complex state, federal and foreign regulations, Jeff is the go-to lawyer for anyone seeking to mitigate risks.

Founder of the iDevelopment and Economic Association (iDEA), a non-profit association that advocates for the online interactive entertainment business, Jeff has wide experience and knowledge of the business and legal issues involved with sports betting, daily fantasy sports, social gaming, eSports, skins betting, iGaming, and mobile gaming, as well as cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.

For companies who become targets for government scrutiny, Jeff’s litigation skills are without peer. He has been at the center of most of the important prosecutions and lawsuits in the online gaming industry, including the seminal Supreme Court case permitting states to legalize sports betting. His record of success has earned him international recognition as a white collar criminal defense lawyer and litigator.
