HEALTHCARE. Six of the largest drug manufactures registered consulting firm
CapitalHill Advisory to help them battle the Australian court system. The
Australian offices of AstraZeneca, Sanofi-Aventis, Pfizer, Novartis
Pharmaceuticals, Merck Sharp & Dohme and Bristol-Myers Squibb all hired
lobbyists to fight against litigation by the Australian government
involving drug patents. The area of the forms that describes the lobbying
activity is marked “privileged & confidential.” The firm and the lobbyist,
Nick Campbell, are based in Australia, but the forms also list an address
in downtown Washington.
