Our lawyers have acted for some of the biggest national businesses and member organisations. We advise on the formation of lotteries and assist with any necessary licences.
For any organisation attempting to delve into this type of gambling, we recommend that professional advice is sought from the outset to ensure that your proposals are legal and that you do not fall foul of the many requirements that are now imposed. Frequently, we find that those attempting to run prize competitions stray into the are of lotteries, which is preserved for the benefit of charities.
Please note that the National Lottery and spread betting falls outside of the provisions of the Gambling Act 2005 and we do not offer any services in relation to these.
