Mr. Scherer expertly represents clients primarily in the area of regulatory and administrative law with special emphasis on gaming regulatory matters and legislative affairs.

Mr. Scherer assists clients in every aspect of the gaming regulatory process. He worked as Supervising Deputy Attorney General in the Gaming Division of the Nevada Attorney General's Office (counsel to the State Gaming Control Board and Nevada Gaming Commission), as a member of the Nevada State Assembly and its Judiciary Committee (the committee with jurisdiction over most gaming bills in Nevada), as Associate General Counsel and Executive Director of International Game Technology, as General Counsel and then Chief of Staff for Governor Kenny C. Guinn, and as a member of the State Gaming Control Board.

Clients appreciate the fact that he has seen the gaming regulatory process from every angle and brings a business-oriented approach to the representation, working to find solutions to problems rather than creating conflict.  My longstanding relationships with many of the key players in the gaming industry, both on the business and regulatory side, help me to ensure a client’s ideas and issues are presented to the right people.

I advise companies on ways to maintain compliance with applicable gaming laws and resolve compliance issues in practical, cost-effective ways.  I have served as counsel for or a member of compliance committees for a number of different gaming companies.
