Legal expert previously advised Playtech from the London law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner

Legal expert Alex Latner must have impressed Playtech as the online gambling company’s adviser whilst he was a 20-year veteran partner at the London law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner – the company has appointed him its permanent General Counsel.

Latner replaces David McLeish who departed Playtech last year, and will continue to give the benefit of his considerable experience in-house regarding corporate acquisitions, important industry transactions and legal disputes, liaising with his old law firm, which remains an adviser to Playtech.


Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
