McCarthy Tétrault Launches MT❯Play, a Global Gaming Consultancy Firm
Toronto, January 31, 2019 – McCarthy Tétrault has launched global gaming consultancy firm MT❯Play, a venture of McCarthy Tétrault. The gaming industry is experiencing rapid transformation – largely driven by technology, demographics and regulatory change. MT❯Play focuses on the future market landscape, setting public and private sector gaming organizations up for long-term success by assisting them to pro-actively manage commercial, legal, regulatory and reputational risks, and capitalize on opportunities presented by technological innovation and shifts in consumer behaviour.
From government bodies and corporations, to casinos and consumers, it is a critical time in the market for all industry stakeholders. Legislation and regulation have failed to keep pace with unprecedented industry developments, including the rise of online gaming and eSports. Additional market pressure stems from increasingly complex regulatory expectations in the areas such as social responsibility and anti-money laundering.
“MT❯Play recognizes that we live and work in an increasingly interconnected, global marketplace, and traditional methods of providing professional services may no longer suffice”, said Ilkim Hincer, President and Founder of MT❯Play. “Our team consists of industry leaders with practical, operational experience, who are also at the forefront of developments in market trends and therefore able to effectively meet changing client needs.”
MT❯Play provides advisory, strategic, technical and operational services. Supported by the platform of McCarthy Tétrault, MT❯Play offers expertise in both traditional and evolving aspects of the gaming industry across six key areas:
- Fantasy Sports
- Sports Betting
To provide the gaming industry with a truly unique service with unparalleled expertise, MT❯Play has established strategic alliances with some of the most respected firms and individuals within the gaming space, both in Canada and internationally. This includes industry leaders across anti-money laundering, compliance, cybersecurity, data governance and privacy, artificial intelligence, responsible gaming, public affairs, procurement and governance. MT❯Play offers scalable teams and tailored solutions to clients across the gaming spectrum.
