DC boutique Ifrah Law is an twelve-lawyer litigation shop attending to what peers consider "some interesting and neat niches." Owing primarily to the reputation and expertise of its namesake, Jeff Ifrah, the firm attracts clients seeking counsel in very specialized areas, with a pronounced emphasis on gambling law. A recent example of this concerns two class actions in the Southern District of Illinois concerning online gambling. The first addressed alleged gambling losses sustained as a result of playing on the Full Tilt Poker website, through which the client was implicated via its addition of Rational FT, which allegedly acquired the assets of Full Tilt. The second case dealt exclusively with alleged gambling losses sustained while playing on the PokerStars websites. In both instances, the courts ruled in the clients' favor and dismissed the cases with prejudice after Ifrah won numerous motions that caused the defendants to amend their ultimately unsuccessful complaints. The firm also represented one of the majority shareholders of Pinnacle Sports, one of the most profitable offshore sports betting sites, in a matter dealing with individuals who were taking bets on the street and accessing the client's website through Canada to get around the geo block.
