June 27, 2018 - June 27, 2018

Alston & Bird and GSI Environmental will present this upcoming webinar program on Wednesday, July 27, 2018 from 2:00pm-3:30pm. ET.

By now, you may have heard about the ubiquitous emerging contaminants grabbing the attention of scientists, regulators, and litigants across the country known as “perfluoroalkyl” or “polyfluoroalkyl” substances (PFAS). You may have examined some of the complex science behind PFAS or noticed the increasing variety of regulations and legal claims intended to address alleged PFAS contamination. Regardless of your past familiarity with PFAS, the time has come to fully understand these emerging contaminants so you can start taking action to protect your clients or business from potentially significant product, environmental, and toxic tort liabilities.

To that end, Alston & Bird LLP and GSI Environmental are pleased to announce a panel presentation addressing the science and law behind PFAS. Panelists will thoroughly analyze the newest PFAS toxicology and environmental chemistry, examine how that science will be used to regulate and litigate PFAS, and consider actions to minimize or eliminate your potential liability. An open Q&A session will follow.

You can learn more about PFAS in our two-part series for Law360, “PFAS: Not Your Typical Emerging Contaminant.”
