Fantasy Sports

The Arent Fox fantasy sports team provides a full range of services to clients in or doing business with the fantasy sports industry, including providing regulatory compliance, intellectual property, privacy and cybersecurity advice as well as representing clients in financing and strategic transactions, litigation, and investigation matters. The lineup consists of the full complement of Arent Fox’s cross-practice Sports industry attorneys and also includes a member of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association Hall of Fame.

We represent a wide variety of entities in the industry, including new market entrants and mature businesses, fantasy sports contest operators (including daily and season-long providers), content providers, commissioner services, and statistics and data providers. We also represent investors and potential investors in structuring their relationships with fantasy sports companies.

Arent Fox attorneys play at the center of current discussions on what is next for the fantasy sports industry, including one team member who represented the industry in the landmark litigation that secured the right of the industry to use player names in fantasy sports games. We remain at the forefront of leading issues in fantasy sports, such as the potential effects upon the industry that could occur as a result of the United States Supreme Court strike-down of PASPA. Arent Fox advises fantasy sports companies on how to work with, and distinguish themselves from, traditional sports gambling companies and remain competitive in a new and evolving landscape.
