A new law practice has opened in Los Angeles that will dedicate its services to companies in the video games industry.
Offner & Associates has been founded by Dan Offner, formerly outside general counsel for virtual reality pioneers Oculus VR. The firm will offer legal aid and angel investments to start-ups, developers, publishers and technology firms.
Offner has decades of experience with legal matters in the interactive enterainment industry, having represented THQ, Ubisoft, Konami, Eidos, PlayStation, Gameloft and more.
He was also an angel investor for Oculus, and handled transactions such as Ubisoft's acquisition of Red Storm Entertainment.
“There are many good lawyers in the videogame market, but few lawyers have had the good fortune to work with a company such as Oculus or some of the other outstanding companies in this space, such as Ubisoft,” said Offner.
“From mobile apps to PC games, console titles to VR experiences, middleware to hardware, to corporate formation, financing and M&A, we’ve been lucky to have done it all and we hope to leverage that experience to bring our clients significant value. We look forward to rekindling old relationships and building new ones as we grow our practice.”
