The world of esports is vastly making its mark in the digital world. It may have been seen before as nothing but a hobby, a simple video game to pass the time. However, esports is becoming a legitimate field for people to pursue their career. In line with this, the legalities for establishing a good esports company plays a vital role. Wherein James Paul Baratta comes to play.
As a former lawyer, Baratta is now a known esports entrepreneur and is continuously making a mark in one of the uprising industries today. Gaming has always been his passion, and the flames grew strong enough to make him leave law, even with seven years of experience as a civil litigator.
Even though he left his life in law, it was a stepping stone to realize his true passion for esports. He worked as a consultant for Granderson des Rochers, a known high profile Beverly Hills law firm. In the said firm, his elder sister, Jamie Slade, is a partner. Working alongside this prestigious law firm in 2017 allowed him to act as a liaison for esports and video game business. He acquired esports deals from distinguished clients with his skills and passion for games, such as YBN Nahmir and Chief Keef’s Glo Navy.
Currently, Baratta has garnered an impressive list of accomplishments for his esports network and consultancy firm, FT Empire LLC. As VP for XR Sports, a tournament solutions platform with white-glove service for Team Envy and more, the learnings he garnered through his experiences are exquisitely synthesized with passion.
Furthermore, Baratta is on the board of his nonprofit league, NACL, founded by FaZe Clan investor Dave Chen. Most recently, Baratta offers his consultation services for both XSET and the Esports Network. The two mentioned companies are some of the most prominent esports organizations and news outlets.
Indeed, Baratta came to the esports industry fueled with passion and packed with lessons from his experiences, and he aims to win. What makes him stand out is his extensive high profile connections. With these advantages, he was able to seal deals with Forbes listed esports teams.
Years from now, Baratta sees himself and FT Empire LLC playing a key role in the boom of the esports industry. This goal will be achieved by a non-stop hustle and bustle to provide premium advice and service to their current and future clients.
Baratta proves that things done with passion and dedication provide the best output and lead to better opportunities. It may be a big leap for him to go from law to esports, but it was one of the best moves he did. Now, he is happily and eagerly doing everything he can to ensure quality services to contribute to his love, esports.
Soon, the esports industry will be more known, and Baratta will be one of the reputable names in terms of consultancy. Connect with him through LinkedIn to start the journey to esports greatness.
