Whether your water system needs to take immediate action, is preparing for upcoming regulation in the state, or wants to understand the impact of impending federal regulation, you may have questions.
Our team has the only lawyers in the country who have tried multiple PFOA cases successfully against 3M and DuPont, the primary defendants in PFAS lawsuits. Our team’s extensive PFAS experience has led to a number of our attorneys holding leadership positions in the current PFAS AFFF multidistrict litigation (MDL).
Our team is the only one with access to an extensive library of documents from 3M and DuPont, demonstrating they knew PFAS was harmful and purposefully provided false information to the public about its dangers. These documents cannot be replicated by anyone else, giving us an unmatched advantage when preparing for and during lawsuits.
We have 20+ years exclusively representing water suppliers in contamination cases. The polluters we aim to hold accountable know that we are very experienced in our field and that we are not afraid of going to trial.
Those responsible for the contamination are some of the largest chemical companies in the country, and we have the resources and the commitment to see this through and get water systems the best possible outcome.
Collectively, we represent over 100 clients — including states, municipalities, water suppliers, and airports in a PFAS multidistrict litigation (MDL).
