Law firm attendees at Games Industry Law Summit 2023

This year, 45% of the Summit’s attendees represent law firms. Our approach is to invite the law firms that already have a significant focus on games (a must for all major markets, such as Germany and US) or on IP,  media & technology (a requirement that we apply to smaller markets where teams focused 100% just on interactive entertainment are not yet sustainable).

Currently, we have 139 law firm attendees from 79 different firms – if you count a multinational firm as one; if, however, we recognise each regional office as its own firm (which is true in terms of management, budgets, and focus, and sometimes even the regional name), then these 140 lawyers represent 95 law firms and come from 42 countries:

🇦🇷 Argentina, 🇦🇹 Austria, 🇦🇺 Australia, 🇦🇿 Azerbaijan, 🇧🇪 Belgium, 🇧🇷 Brazil, 🇧🇬 Bulgaria, 🇨🇦 Canada, 🇨🇱 Chile, 🇨🇳 China (incl. 🇭🇰 Hong Kong), 🇨🇴 Colombia, 🇨🇾 Cyprus, 🇨🇿 Czech Republic, 🇪🇪 Estonia, 🇫🇮 Finland, 🇫🇷 France, 🇩🇪 Germany, 🇬🇷 Greece, 🇮🇳 India, 🇮🇪 Ireland, 🇮🇱 Israel, 🇮🇹 Italy, 🇯🇵 Japan, 🇰🇷 Korea, 🇱🇻 Latvia, 🇱🇹 Lithuania, 🇲🇽 Mexico, 🇳🇱 Netherlands, 🇵🇱 Poland, 🇵🇹 Portugal, 🇷🇴 Romania, 🇷🇸 Serbia, 🇸🇬 Singapore, 🇸🇰 Slovakia, 🇪🇸 Spain, 🇸🇪 Sweden, 🇨🇭 Switzerland, 🇹🇷 Turkey, 🇬🇧 United Kingdom, 🇺🇾 Uruguay and 🇺🇸 USA.
