Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (“PFAS”)
A Rapidly Evolving Regulatory, Policy, and Litigation Issue
For decades, PFAS compounds have been used in the production and composition of a multitude of products, due to highly useful chemical properties. Evolving science has raised questions, however, and now these chemicals are under close scrutiny in the regulatory, legislative, and litigation arenas, with high-stakes action underway on multiple fronts. Businesses across the country face ever-increasing challenges in complying with new legal requirements, understanding legal exposures, defending against proliferating litigation, applying new assessments in business transactions, and managing business risks.

Our team includes former government officials and attorneys, lawyers with technical experience, and former in-house counsel, working together with experienced litigators and transactional practitioners in a collaborative approach tailored to the needs of each individual client.
