Taft partner Robert A. Bilott was mentioned in the article "State drinking water regulators push feds on PFAS contamination," which was published by the Bucks County Courier Times. The article discusses a recent decision by federal agencies to hold a Federal Information Exchange in February 2018. During this meeting, participants will share emerging impactful data and improve understanding of the science behind decision-making regarding PFAS.
Bilott, who serves as co-lead counsel for the plaintiff’s altering committee handling litigation against DuPont, has been in the spotlight since The New York Times Magazine dubbed him “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare” in an article published on Jan. 6, 2016. On Feb. 13, 2017, DuPont publicly disclosed that it has reached a settlement in principle to resolve the C-8 personal injury, multi-district litigation now pending in federal court in Columbus, Ohio, for $670.7 million.
Bilott is a member of Taft's Environmental, Litigation and Product Liability and Personal Injury practices. He represents a diverse range of clients on a wide variety of matters involving federal, state and local environmental laws and related litigation.
