RUMORED DRAFTKINGS, FANDUEL MERGER WOULD BE UPHILL

24 June 2016

Peter Spier, Chair of the Gaming and Fantasy Sports group at Gould & Ratner LLP (Chicago), was featured in a June 14, 2016, Law360 article Rumored DraftKings, FanDuel Merger Would Be Uphill Battle by saying that “a number of states have essentially banned daily fantasy sports.   Even in the states that are regulating it, it is still a different economic situation because you are looking at regulatory costs not only in terms of licensing fees but in terms of having to hire people to handle the licensing and regulatory process.”[caption id="attachment_3118" align="alignleft" width="150"] Peter Spier[/caption]
