There is also speculation that it will bid for Brussels firm Paul

Adamson Associates, although WS managing director Michael Burrell

refused to say whether he had approached the firm.



Adamson Associates has had a strategic alliance with Lowe Bell

Communications since 1995, although an expected deal has not

materialised. Agency chairman Paul Adamson would neither confirm nor

deny he had been approached by WS.



Meanwhile, WS and its sister agency European Strategy announced a

link-up with top ten Washington lobbying firm The Jefferson Group - the

first formal alliance it has had with a US firm. Burrell said the move

was prompted partly by the fact that many US companies are now targeting

the UK for investment.



TJG employs more than 100 people across a range of businesses including

government relations and PR.
