Andrew Foyle is a long-time attorney with the Lovell White Durant law firm and had extensive contacts with British American Tobacco Company (BAT), Brown & Williamson and other companies within the BAT group.
Foyle was the author of the so-called "Foyle memorandum," a highly sensitive document subpoenaed by Judge Gladys Kessler in the trial of U.S. vs. Philip Morris et al. U.S. Government lawyers believed the Foyle memorandum contained the legal advice of Foyle, who worked for the Australian office of British American Tobacco, on whether the company should keep or destroy internal paperwork in light of increasing litigation. The memo allegedly served as a guideline for destruction of sensitive internal corporate documents under the guise of document retention/preservation. The American federal court sought the document for years. BAT repeatedly fought requests for the document.
