Through the signing of a specific cooperation agreement, the strategic partnership between A.I.eSp. (Italian Association eSports) and EXP Legal, Italian and international law firm (with offices in Rome and Milan), aimed at developing common projects and initiatives in the legal area, with the focus being exclusively on the emerging eSports market. The declared objective of the partnership is to contribute to the birth of the right "ecosystem" to jointly manage the now unstoppable development of the phenomenon of electronic sports.
The Italian eSports Association was founded to develop a video-play culture in Italy, through competitive and amateur sports activities, including the Paralympic sectors.
In this path, new to Italy, to be regulated and controlled in a short time, the development of the sports component of video games will be reached, step by step, with the fundamental ethical objective of combating the drifts that create negative phenomena, such as the themes of piracy, match fixing and addictive behaviors, with particular attention to young people.
A.I.eSp. will promote in Italy the culture of eSports in compliance with the rules of the Olympic disciplines, placing itself against all the Associations, Institutions and Companies operating in the sector, as a potential connecting entity of the entire supply chain of Electronic Sports and as a reference point in the sector.
"The partnership signed with EXP Legal is strategic for the development and growth of our Association", explains Marcel Vulpis, president of A.I.eSp. "We have entered into synergy with a reality that connects 91 law firms, members of the International Lawyers Network, present in 67 different countries of the world. This will allow us to access, in a privileged way, a series of professional opportunities, especially in those markets, such as the United States, South Korea, England and France, where eSports, for a long time, are a real economic reality, beyond that socio-cultural, allowing the Italian market to recover the existing gap in a short time".
The lawyer, Mr. Antonello Corrado, underlines how "With the signing of the Partnership with A.I.eSp., EXP Legal finds an important opportunity for the strategic sharing of the aims, objectives, competences and mission of A.I.eSp., to pursue the common commitment to contribute to the sustainable evolution of a sport that must adopt best practices and regulations, with respect to which examination, knowledge and comparison with the most mature and advanced international experiences are fundamental. This activity has become our flagship considering the assistance that our law firm has been practicing - for a long time and effectively - for numerous clients, both Italian and foreign, on different foreign markets ".
