Hackney Publications, the nation’s leading publisher of sports law periodicals, has announced that Ifrah Law (Ifrah) will be the sponsor of MyLegalBookie, a quarterly electronic newsletter, which will be complimentary to those that subscribe.
MyLegalBookie will provide insights into the legal side of online gaming and sports betting industries like no publication has before with insightful interviews, features and expert analysis.
Aside from sponsoring the newsletter, Ifrah will also provide bylined articles from its attorneys, who have accumulated significant experience in the eSports space. Additional original content will be provided by Hackney Publications and MyLegalBookie’s Editor in Chief, Ellen M. Zavian, a Professorial Lecturer in Law at the George Washington University Law School and nationally recognized sports law attorney.
Jeff Ifrah and the rest of the partnership team will provide editorial guidance and direction. Other members of the firm will also contribute articles from time to time.
“We’re looking forward to sharing our insights about this fast-changing industry,” said Ifrah. “This newsletter provides us with a way to do our part as stewards and help the industry grow in a responsible manner.”
Similarly, Professor Zavian, who has decades of experience in the sports industry, has embraced the publication and the opportunity to work with Ifrah.
“Jeff is the unquestioned leader in the sports betting space,” Professor Zavian said. “The fact that he and the firm have been recognized by Chambers and other industry observers speaks volumes about their reputation.”
Meanwhile, Hackney said he has been looking for more than a year for the right partner to cover the legal side of the sports betting industry.
“The search began and ended with Ifrah Law,” said Hackney, who has written about the industry for two decades. “Along with Ellen, this is as close as you can get to a sure bet.”
