The Macau gaming market works in a very unique way, often different from other gaming jurisdictions.

In order to succeed – more than in any other jurisdiction – one needs a comprehensive knowledge on who are Macau’s stakeholders and what are their long established market practices.

The increasing sophistication of the Macau economy has outgrown its legal framework, creating grey areas that need to be overcome with strong and decisive legal advice.

Moreover, its bilingual civil law system (Chinese and Portuguese) is not always easy to foreign investors and the complexity of the administrative process also requires a deep understanding of the local standards and practices.

On the other hand, the combination of gaming and hospitality operations within large scale integrated resorts poses new legal and regulatory challenges in Macau that can only be addressed based on a clear understanding of the legal framework and the different regulators approach.
