PFAS For In-House Counsel: What Legal Departments Need To Know About PFAS Regulation And Litigation
PFAS, a class of industrial chemicals, has become a hotbed of regulation and litigation after allegations that the compounds are linked to a range of health effects. PFAS are ubiquitous in the environment, including in consumer and industrial products such as non-stick cookware, waterproof apparel, stain-resistant carpets, personal care products, and cleaning products. Many large organizations, including major retailers, cosmetic brands, and restaurant chains, have become the targets of PFAS litigation.
