Esports lawyer Bryce Blum has launched ESG Law, the first law firm dedicated to esports.

"ESG Law goes beyond the typical attorney‑client relationship," ESG Law states on their website. "Woven into the fabric of the esports ecosystem and deeply invested in its future growth, we are not simple service providers; we are engaged citizens of the esports community that create legal solutions to a constantly evolving set of challenges."

Blum was one of the founders of Interactive Media & Entertainment Law and is a General Counsel for esports betting company Unikrn. In November, Blum was made executive vice president of Catalyst Sports & Media, a sports agency that focuses on basketball, European football and esports.

ESG Law's list of clients includes Team Liquid, Team SoloMid, Immortals, Paul "ReDeYe" Chaloner, Christopher "MonteCristo" Mykles and Beyond the Summit, among others.
