In his practice, Sharma is trusted by sports businesses and technology companies to provide counsel in matters relating to the future of sports, including esports, sports tech, legalized sports wagering and integrity. He is frequently involved in bet-the-company litigation, and has significant experience in business litigation, construction litigation and products liability litigation.
