This site deals only with the corporate corruption of science, and makes no inference about the motives or activities of individuals involved.
There are many reasons why individuals become embroiled in corporate corruption activities - from political zealotry to over-enthusiastic activism; from gullibility to greed.

Lloyd N (Larry) Newman
Larry Newman ran the science administation operations of Newman Partnership Ltd, while his brother Fred was the in-house lawyer for Philip Morris in charge of most of the science scams.
There is no overlap between the science operations of the Newman Partnership Lrd (NPL) and APCO & Associates which took over these operations for Philip Morris, so APCO must have been the successor. The role of Larry at NPL seems to have faded when Fred resigned from Philip Morris — or it may have been the other way, that Fred resigned after NPL was fired.
This NPL deal with Larry may have been a scam, perhaps one not known by PM's directors. However, n late 1990, Philip Morris's top executives were unhappy about the way their scientific lobbying was progressing, and things were changing rapidly.
