Nicholas R. Amato, Of Counsel and Chair of the Casino & Gaming Law Practice, was quoted in a recent Law360 article "Atlantic City's Winning Streak Will Be Tough to Sustain".

Mr. Amato said, "Atlantic City's best bet is to develop its portfolio of nongambling attractions, something Las Vegas has done with aplomb with concerts, theater, theme parks and high-end retail."
