Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP recently launched a legal blog for the video game industry -- lawofthelevel.com. The online resource will focus on issues important to the gaming sector.
The blog is written and managed by a group of Sheppard Mullin attorneys whose practices focus on areas that affect the game industry. The interdisciplinary team of attorneys includes lawyers based in most of the firm's 11 offices and represents a variety of practice groups, including intellectual property, entertainment and media, business trial, corporate, and labor and employment.
"The idea to launch a game blog was conceived by associate Shawn Foust, based on his interest, enthusiasm and desire to create a formal online resource aligned with the team that he leads," said Vickie Spang, Sheppard Mullin's chief marketing officer. "We now have 16 blogs providing legal updates and analysis, which showcase the firm's industry knowledge and expertise."
Foust's practice is devoted to tackling the cutting edge legal issues facing businesses in the entertainment, new media and technology industries.
