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:
