US Style Lobbying to Increase in the EU ?
Corporate Counsel this morning includes an article asserting that US style lobbying will be increasing in Europe. One example arises from issues about banning use of plastic bags. More issues are predicted. Litigation no doubt will be part of the tool kit as the lobby and litigation industries continue to grow. Ont the other hand, as the article points out, EU elections are publicly funded and so the EU avoids the current US issues with campaign contributions, SuperPACS, etc.
