Frank A. Schreck is the namesake of the William S. Boyd School of Law’s Gaming Law Moot Court Competition for good reason. Mr. Schreck is chair of the Gaming Law Group at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP. For more than 40 years, Schreck has played an important role in shaping the realm of gaming law.

Mr. Schreck has represented many of the premier public and private gaming companies (including Wynn Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Station Casinos, Pinnacle Entertainment, Penn National Gaming, Scientific Games Corporation, and William Hill plc); private equity firms (including Apollo Global Management, TPG, Blackstone Real Estate Advisors and Leonard Green & Partners), as well as large financial institutions who became involved in the ownership of casino properties (including Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse).

Not only has Mr. Schreck represented his client’s gaming interests in Nevada, but he has also been a pioneer in the licensing of companies involved in multi-jurisdictional transactions, including the purchase of Harrah’s Entertainment by Apollo Global Management and TPG, which is the largest gaming transaction. Mr. Schreck has also participated in gaming related matters in such foreign jurisdictions as Japan, Macau, Puerto Rico, Spain and Great Britain.

At age 27, Mr. Schreck was the youngest individual, by far, appointed as a member of the Nevada Gaming Commission. He has also served as President of the International Association of Gaming Attorneys (“IAGA”) and was the Chairman of its Fourth Annual Conference in Vienna, Austria.

We are proud to honor Mr. Schreck by naming the Gaming Law Moot Court Competition for him.
