Bilott To Serve on Panel as a Keynote Speaker at Upcoming Global Conference

Taft partner Rob Bilott, along with consumer advocate Erin Brockovich, Chris Gardner, and Dr. André Kuipers, will be one of the keynote speakers at the annual global conference, Assent Evolve 2023, to be held virtually on June 14–15, 2023. The event will showcase industry-leading sustainability experts who will provide a roadmap on how to navigate the rapidly-emerging regulatory risks that are challenging manufacturers today. 

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.
