Foley & Lardner LLP recently represented GamerSafer, a security and online gamer experience startup, in the acquisition of the Minehunt business unit from Super League.

The two companies will maintain a commercial relationship which ensures that Minehut can remain an ongoing destination available to Super League’s partners. GamerSafer is committed to sustaining and growing Minehut which affirms the community’s status as a highly desirable media property.

Founded in Silicon Valley in 2019 by two Brazilian entrepreneurs, GamerSafer is a VC-backed startup scaling positive and fair play experiences to millions of players worldwide. Their safety tech suite helps online games, Esports platforms, and online communities defeat crimes, fraud, and toxicity – a $15B problem for the industry. The solution operates across platforms, verifying and authenticating players in less than one second using computer vision and AI technologies. By consolidating information from independent customer silos, GamerSafer offers a comprehensive cross-network safety and security (similar to a credit bureau). Minecraft was the first major game ecosystem using the technology and the company also found substantial traction within Esports and thousands of Discord online communities. Currently, GamerSafer products protect more than 15M players in 85 countries.

The Foley team was led by partner André Thiollier and included partners James Howard and Krista Cabrera, of counsel Alan Pate, and associates Talita Duarte, Travis Mullin, and Sarah Waste.
