Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP is pleased to announce that Robert A. Bilott has been selected as one of Law360’s 2017 MVPs in the Class Action category.
Bilott was nominated for his role as co-lead counsel for the plaintiff’s altering committee handling litigation against DuPont. He 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.
According to Law360, selected attorneys have “distinguished themselves from their peers by securing hard-earned successes in high-stakes litigation, complex global matters and record-breaking deals.” Recipients were nominated and selected from more than 1,000 submissions.
