Date: 9/11/2019

America’s vaping industry has in recent years taken its fight to fend off regulation directly to President Donald Trump’s doorstep, with a lobbying group twice booking annual meetings at his Washington hotel and e-cigarette maker Juul hiring two of his former White House officials.

Matthew Sanderson is also a Member of the Political Law Group at Caplin & Drysdale.
