A sample of those responsible in big businesses for hiring lobbyists was interviewed. 'Propensity to hire' depends on internal needs for services offered: on needs for access to decision-makers; for representation; and for policy advice and administrative support. Demand for services is not constant: even within one company, it is contingent on externalities. 'Propensity to hire' seems not to relate to corporate size. It depends on several factors: experience and capacity of corporate staff; supply side ativities by hired lobbyists (aka commercial lobbyists); the company's strategic position in the economy; expectations in their economic sector, and the challenges faced.
