Lobbyists at King & Spalding have come to the aid of the world's second largest tobacco company.
BATLaw Ltd., a subsidiary of London-based British American Tobacco PLC (BAT), has enlisted the firm to lobby for it on matters concerning "discrimination and market access for tobacco products under international trade and investment rules," according to lobbying registration paperwork filed with Congress last week. King & Spalding international trade practice partners Joseph Dorn, Stephen Orava and Daniel Crosby, as well as associate Joshua Snead, are handling the account.
Dorn, the founding partner of King & Spalding’s international trade practice, and Snead are based in Washington. Crosby is based in Geneva, Switzerland. Orava splits his time between Washington and Geneva, where he is the managing partner.
