“Bradshaw Smith has served a diverse range of clients in the gaming industry since our inception and we are proud of our strong reputation for the specialized services we provide. We are thrilled to combine our resources and work together to serve the industry nationally at the highest level,” said Jeff Cooper and Jeff Pero, both gaming partners with Bradshaw Smith.
