A complex and swiftly changing legal landscape

At the European level, AKD is able to command deep experience in the sector. For example, one of our partners was strongly involved in the advent of a regulated market for online betting. He participated in various initiatives encouraged by the European Commission, which enabled the opening of the online betting market, particularly in France and Belgium. Today, AKD continues to assist the sector throughout Europe, most notably in the field of data protection and in the fight against match-fixing, amongst other things.

In the Netherlands, AKD is active in cases such as proceedings with respect to the highest ever fine imposed by the Dutch Gaming Authority (KSA). AKD also advises gaming and betting service providers and governmental bodies with respect to the Gaming Act. With the pending opening of the Dutch remote gaming market, AKD is also assisting clients with their Dutch permit applications.
