Litigants and regulators across the country are increasingly turning their attention to perﬂuoroalkyl and polyﬂuoroalkyl substances (PFAS). These ubiquitous emerging contaminants come from a wide variety of sources and have been used in myriad ways in the U.S. and globally for decades. Thus far, litigation and regulation have tended to focus on certain common PFAS compounds—such as perﬂuorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perﬂuorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), and perﬂuorononanoic acid (PFNA)—but that focus is expanding. PFAS litigation and regulation are growing, and the impacts are seen across industries.
Please join us for a presentation about recent developments, how they could impact your company, and what role in-house counsel play in protecting their organizations from risk.
You will hear about:
- What are the recent regulations around PFAS?
- Which businesses will be most impacted, and what might those impacts be?
- What are the risks presented by the growing wave of PFAS litigation?
- What will the EPA's proposed hazardous substance designation mean for Superfund sites?
- Can we expect other PFAS chemicals to be designated as hazardous substances?
CLE credit will be applied for where applicable. Additional states may be available upon request.
