In the Los Angeles Times, a feature on law firms creating specialized practices for the video games industry:

A year ago, newly minted lawyer Shawn Foust approached a senior partner at his Century City firm with an idea: dedicate an entire practice to the video game industry.

Today, the 26-year-old coordinates a team of 20 lawyers at Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton that tackles mergers, licensing contracts and other deals that help make the burgeoning game business hum.

“I’m pursuing my lifelong dream of combining the two things I love — games and law,” Foust said.

Another firm with a specialty game practice is Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger.

Lawyers in these groups are often gamers, who are familiar with the industry and its products.
