Join Anne Lynch on September 14th at 10:45 am PDT, as she speaks on litigation and other developments relating to federal standards, including the dispute over whether PFOA-based chemicals should be treated individually or as a family of chemicals at LSI's "PFAS Litigation in the Pacific Northwest" Virtual Conference.
This comprehensive two-day conference focuses on the emerging wave of PFAS litigation involving sites in the Pacific Northwest. PFAS chemicals do not break down in the environment, have adverse health effects, and have been estimated to be present in the bodies of 99% of the U.S. population. As a result, cities and states, as well as the US EPA, have begun to issue guidance and, in some cases, Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs), surface water quality standards, and groundwater quality standards for PFAS.
Law Seminars International has assembled a group of distinguished experts to help you most effectively participate in litigation arising from PFAS contamination. In addition to Anne, you'll hear from experts on the chemistry, sources, persistency in the environment, and resulting health impacts, with an eye toward building the best possible record.
On the legal side, we'll discuss regulatory responses, liability theories and defenses, special issues for cases involving federal facilities, risk management for potentially responsible parties, and practical tips for approaching PFAS cases.
