We are currently accepting clients from all over the world, although clients residing in the United States may have their claims brought in arbitration instead of Court.
Jones Ward PLC has a team of lawyers with many years of experience in class action litigation. The law firm is pursuing multiple class action lawsuits against Valve and various skins gambling websites connected to the video game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

We are working diligently to recover funds from U.S. residents who have lost money or skins through these illegal gambling contracts. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to recover the value lost by all users, or that we will recover at all, due to the nature of litigation and arbitration.

Class Action Lawsuit Update, April 2017: U.S. District Judge John C. Coughenour has ruled that gamers and their parents are subject to arbitration for their claims against Valve and other companies that promoted illegal gambling operations. Unfortunately, this means plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit may not get their day in court.
After the initial class action was filed by Jones Ward’s legal team, Valve asked the court to force the plaintiffs to arbitrate their dispute. Arbitration is an out-of-court dispute resolution process that can be prohibitively expensive for an individual claimant. Valve argued that its customers had agreed to arbitration when they accepted the Steam subscriber agreement when they opened an account.
The plaintiffs represented by Jones Ward countered that the agreement is unenforceable against minors and their parents who never accepted the agreement. They also argued that the claims deal with an “unauthorized use” exception in the agreement and aren’t subject to arbitration.
Jones Ward PLC continues to work diligently to recover funds from U.S. residents who have lost money or skins through these illegal gambling contracts, including through arbitration. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to recover the value lost by all users, or that we will recover at all, due to the nature of litigation. Still, we seek to assist every user that has been wronged by these companies and can only do so with your help.
