Roedel Parsons has seasoned attorneys with extensive experience in the gaming arena. We have drawn on a wealth of experience in licensing and regulatory compliance, lobbying, financing, business/corporate practices, all of which are critical in the highly regulated gaming environment.
We work regularly in all aspects of licensing, including pre and post-licensing matters, business structures and suitability questions, operational matters and review of any legislative matters. We have represented everyone from investors and bankers and other lending institutions, racetrack owners, to gaming owners and operators.
Our Work With Gaming And Gaming Rules And Regulations
Our lawyers and lobbyists were part of the original team to legalize gaming, racinos, and video poker. Our government relations specialists were instrumental in saving the 15th license for riverboats, which is now L’Auberge in Lake Charles. We have since worked in the development and compliance of the rules and regulations which govern the industry.
We continually maintain relationships with the Louisiana Gaming Control Board, Louisiana State Racing Commission, the State Police Compliance and Audit Division, and professional organizations which deal in gaming. Our lawyers have been listed in Chambers Global Guide, Chambers USA, The Best Lawyers in America in Gaming, Louisiana Super Lawyers in Gaming, Best Lawyers of America in Gaming. Our team of partners has also been included in top peer-review ratings in Martindale-Hubbell.
We have been involved in a number of Greenfield projects, including Evangeline Downs and Racetrack Casino, Delta Downs Racetrack and Casino, Margaritaville Bossier City, and others. We have also spearheaded with operators the gaming referendums to pass those projects. With our wealth of experience, we can expertly serve all of your gaming needs.
