Bilott Featured in the New York Times Magazine Article “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare"

Taft Partner Robert A. Bilott is featured in the New York Times Magazine article “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare," which covers Bilott's work to hold DuPont accountable for the harm caused by its release of the toxin PFOA (“C8”) in and around Parkersburg, W.Va. He has been fighting DuPont for the last 16 years, during which time DuPont settled the class-action suit, and is currently prosecuting the second of 3,535 personal-injury cases filed by members of the class.

At Taft, Bilott represents a diverse range of clients on a wide variety of matters involving federal, state and local environmental laws and related litigation. For more than 25 years, he has handled not only environmental issues of regulatory compliance, permitting and corporate/real estate transactions, but all aspects of litigation arising from such issues, from administrative hearings to multi-party, complex multi-district litigation, mass torts and class actions.
