Over recent years, fewer industries in the UK have faced greater political, public and media scrutiny than gambling. On an almost daily basis media reports on the impact of gambling on people and society. Gambling operators are often presented as irresponsible, immoral corporations that benefit from the pain of customers. On the latest edition of Fair & Square, we have assembled a panel of industry experts including David Zeffman from CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang, Alice Hancock from the Financial Times, and Bruce Garrow from Investec who discuss what the future holds for this challenged but dynamic industry. Joining this panel is Alex Brennan, who heads up Hudson Sandler’s Consumer Industries practice.
