Contact us – if you were an industry employee

Were YOU a tobacco company employee who became an addicted smoker as a result of being given free cigarettes by your employer? Do you now have a serious disease caused by your smoking? If so, please contact us.

Shocking new evidence is emerging of how tobacco manufacturers in the UK for many years handed out free cigarettes to their employees, while publicly denying that smoking tobacco was an addictive habit. Simon Neale received thousands of free cigarettes a month from the tobacco industry and is now seriously ill with cancer. Solicitors Leigh Day are now examining Mr Neale’s case with a view to commencing legal action against the BAT group of which Rothmans is now part.
