Bilott Speaks At Cornell Law School Webinar

Taft partner Rob Bilott participated in a virtual event, “Justice for Victims of Water Pollution: Q&A with Environmental Lawyer Rob Bilott,” hosted by The Environmental Law Society of Cornell University, on Feb. 20. Bilott discussed his legal battle against DuPont and how he obtained justice for thousands of people whose drinking water was polluted by so-called forever chemicals (e.g., PFOA). 

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.
