Jeff Ifrah and Michelle Cohen To Speak At National Council of Legislators from Gaming StatesOn August 11, 2017 by Jeff Ifrah
Jeff Ifrah and Michelle Cohen, two prominent lawyers from Washington DC’s acclaimed law firm Ifrah Law, will be speaking at the Winter conference of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS). Together, they were invited to Florida for the January event, where they will discuss the legal issues among online Skill-Based Games and Fantasy Sports.
The National Council of Legislators from Gaming States hosts bi-annual conferences that include a select group of expert practitioners from the industry to present trends and information to legislators from all over the country. It is the only organization of state lawmakers that meets regularly to discuss topics regarding Internet gaming. Having become a highly contentious issue in recent years, the NCLGS holds a vital role as a proactive participant in educating legislators of the effects and potential problems and solutions that arise through the multi-billion-dollar industry. The programs are designed to include balanced panel presentations that offer opposing views, as a means to be a leading source in non-partisan data on issues of gaming legislation and regulation. This will be Michelle Cohen’s third time speaking, and Jeff Ifrah’s second time. The conference will be held January 8-10 2016 in Orlando, Florida, and will discuss various topics including tourism and gaming, online lottery initiatives, and the economic impact of online gaming.
