Legal action against pricing of some airports/handlers and funds gathering

Hello,
As the next steps following the surveys and associated discussion please find below a proposal of legal dealing against the excess prices of airports/ handlers in Europe, aimed at getting rid of GA when the will come. Through excessive prices we are banned from the growing number of airports, it is high time to start a serious fight against that.
Initially, I was talking with two legal companies, each with aviation law roots and both were admitting that the situation is wrong here. They engaged themselves into analyzing the potential for legal action against airports abusing its market position, both at EU and national levels.
Unfortunately after some initial analysis one of them decided that they do not see much chances for positive outcome of such endeavor, they miss skills, decided not to provide an offer. As a result I have one proposal for our consideration, of K&K Aviation Lawyers, for me a well suited team, please see attached their competencies description.
In the next post, I will present the scope of the proposal and the price for that. And let’s start discussing, if you find it of interest for our group, if we should ask for changing something, if it is promising enough to start with the money gathering process. Because if the comments of yours will be positive in general – the next would be to start the crowd funding process, and after collecting the asked amount of money – let the lawyers do their job…
For those who would like to read the former threads associated with this one, these are:

All good stuff here and I would support this.

Unfortunately I don’t think enough GA across Europe cares about the issue.
So I suspect the ability to raise enough funds for several rounds of legal challenges would be difficult.

Pilot apathy is why this problem still exists.
Very happy to be proven wrong though.

EuroGA daily audience… and these are people actually interested in GA

There are many more people here than one might expect.

That’s a good number. It would be interesting to see how many readers are willing to do something about this specific issue.

Peter could create a list in which anyone can register who wants to participate. A suggestion: everyone pays 100 Euro (roughly 40 l Avgas).
1000 readers actually interested in GA x 100 Euro=100000 Euro., that should be enough

What about using a crowd funding platform? A financial target can be set and everyone agrees to pay a specific amount if the target is reached but doesn’t get billed if it doesn’t.

A modern approach, although I dunno about the fees of such platforms.

Kickstarter (probably not suitable here but as an example) charges about 8-10%, quite a lot: https://www.kickstarter.com/help/fees?country=GB
