Bilott Presenting Keynote To ABA Fellows in Minneapolis

Taft partner Rob Bilott will be the keynote speaker at an event for The Fellows of the American Bar Association in Minneapolis on Nov. 8. His presentation, “A Legal History of Worldwide PFAS ‘Forever Chemical’ Contamination,” will include his prolific battles to better the environment and answer the question “is it safe to drink the water?”.

Dubbed by The New York Times Magazine as “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare” in an article published on Jan. 6, 2016, Bilott has represented a diverse array of clients, nationwide, who have been harmed by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also known as “Forever Chemicals.” His work is the subject of a recent feature film, “Dark Waters,” and the documentary “The Devil We Know,” and is detailed in his book, “Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer’s Twenty-year Battle Against DuPont.”

Bilott is a member of Taft’s Environmental, Litigation, and Product Liability and Personal Injury practices and is a board member of Less Cancer and Green Umbrella.
