Macfarlanes advises Ladbrokes Coral on CMA online gaming investigation

01 February 2018

Macfarlanes has advised the Ladbrokes Coral Group on the Competition and Markets Authority's (CMA’s) wide-ranging investigation into online betting and gaming.

The CMA announced the results of its investigation on 1 February, with Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming Limited - alongside a number of other operators - agreeing to make certain changes to its online gaming promotions. These changes will now need to be adopted by operators across the sector.

The Macfarlanes team was led by competition and regulatory partner Tom Usher, assisted by commercial and technology senior solicitor Will Hedges. Macfarlanes worked alongside Ladbrokes Coral's in-house legal and regulatory team, led by group general counsel Lindsay Beardsell and lead legal counsel (commercial) Matt Hill.
