Legal Challenge IV: Judges/Semifinals

Legal Challenge IV: Judges/Semifinals
By Sergei Klimov • Issue #67 • View online
With Denmark ceasing the use of AstraZeneca jabs and Lithuania as well as Latvia coming forward to purchase the unused doses from the Copenhagen’s freezers, the chances that everyone here in Vilnius will get their shots by the time the Summit starts in September have just increased.
And looking at the wonderful news out of Israel (where positivity rate is as low as 0.3%, and daily case count is down from 10.000 to less than 200), I believe that we’re looking at a very promising autumn season this year, when finally we’ll be able to re-engage with all of our extended families.*
But before we see each other here in Vilnius Old Town, there’s the matter of the Legal Challenge IV – which starts less than a week from now!
* – unless another war happens; please refer to global news for the exact list of affected regions.

Judge Panels/Semifinals
A week from now, four strong legal teams will clash in the semifinals of Legal Challenge IV. Highlighting the international nature of our industry, the judges of the semifinal panels this year come from Los Angeles, San Francisco, St. Petersburg, Nicosia, Warsaw and London.
These seasoned professionals bring a wealth of experience, both in the games industry and in the general field of litigation. I doubt that we could find a better group of people to help us decide on who deserves to qualify into the finals of the Challenge, and we’re immensely appreciative of the time and effort that the judges have put into the event over the last year and a half.
To introduce the judges to the teams ahead of the hearings, we recorded the interviews where we asked them about their experience; their current law firms and/or games companies; and their views on what makes a good games industry lawyer (in-house or specialised). We also asked for any advice that they may give to the teams – especially specific to this year’s digital format of the hearings.
Ladies and gentlemen, please meet the 6 judges of the semifinal panels of Legal Challenge IV:
