WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Ifrah Law, a Washington, D.C.-based law firm with deep expertise in Internet gaming regulation, today celebrated the signing of the nation's first-ever interstate online gaming agreement. Breaking new ground in the legalization of online gaming, the agreement will enable players in Delaware and Nevada to play the same games.
Serving as Special Internet Gaming Counsel to the Delaware State Lottery, Ifrah Law played a critical role in the development of the complex agreement, which addressed uniform standards for items such as licensing, taxation rates, revenue distribution models, and player disputes. Tad Decker of Cozen O'Connor supported Ifrah in the development of this significant document.
"We were thrilled to work closely with the governors' offices in both states, the Nevada Gaming Commission and the Delaware State Lottery to draft this agreement," said Jeff Ifrah, the firm's founder. "While online gaming in the U.S. is still in its infancy, it's long been a core expertise of ours. We were honored to be asked to serve such an important role."
Jeff Ifrah is internationally recognized as one of the top lawyers in the field of igaming, earning the spot as the only American on Gaming Intelligence Magazine's Hot 50 List for 2012.

Its clients include Experian, PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, the Interactive Gaming Council, Intrade Prediction, Instaforex, and Banc de Binary.
In addition to drafting the interstate agreement, Ifrah will continue to provide legal advice for the Lottery's various Internet gaming needs. Currently, three states have legalized Internet gaming within their borders -- Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey. The interstate agreement will address concerns of player liquidity and provide a more robust gaming experience for players in both states.
