Bryce Blum Launches First-Ever Dedicated Esports Law Firm

By   /   Jan 4, 2017

Bryce Blum has for long been part of the esports community, representing individuals from the professional scene as well as spreading legal awareness through online discussions and podcasts. The Seattle-based lawyer is now entirely dedicating himself to the industry by opening the first-ever esports law firm.

Electronic Sports and Gaming Law (ESG Law) promises “to continue creating legal solutions for a constantly evolving set of challenges throughout the esports space”.

“We are not simple service providers; we are engaged citizens of the esports community that create legal solutions to a constantly evolving set of challenges,” reads the firm’s bio on its official website. “Our unmatched level of engagement with the industry we serve allows us to offer unique insights into our client’s plans and facilitate connections that impact not only the success of our client’s ventures, but the industry as a whole.”

In the past couple of years, Bryce Blum has worked with a number of organizations and individuals from the scene. His portfolio lists Team Liquid, Team SoloMid, Team EnVyUs, Team Dignitas, Luminosity Gaming, Fnatic, and Immortals. He has also represented Christopher “MonteCristo” Kjell Mykles, Erik “DoA” Lonnquist, Paul “ReDeYe” Chaloner, Joedat “Voyboy” Esfahani, and several others.

At the end of 2016, Bryce Blum was called upon by several teams in relation to the Professional Esports Association (PEA) dispute. With Riot Games recently announcing new revenue sharing options and an arbitration system for teams participating in its League Championship Series (LCS), the young lawyer will soon be dealing with those branches as well.

With the expansive world of esports, it’s unlikely that Blum will be lacking in cases.
