Emerging Contaminant Per-and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)
Per-and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of thousands of man-made chemicals that accumulate in the environment over time because they do not break down. In recent years PFAS regulations at all levels of government have been implemented. As a result PFAS litigation costs now exceed tens of billions of dollars per year. This June 29, 2022, webinar featuring Procopio Environmental Law group leader John Lormon and others provides a detailed overview what PFAS are, current and pending PFAS regulations (federal and California), PFAS impacts on the due diligence process (Phase I ESA), and available PFAS insurance coverage, and how to manage PFAS legal liability.
