"Forever Chemicals" in FDA-Regulated Products - Regulatory and Litigation Outlook for 2024

Event Description

Online registration is now closed. To register, please email Yajaira Lansiquot at ylansiquot@mnbars.org.

Remote Only Event

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, known by the acronym PFAS and better known by the moniker "forever chemicals," are the focus of rapidly evolving regulatory regimes at the U.S. federal and state level.  This increased attention in turn is driving new theories of liability against manufacturers whose products contain PFAS.  Companies must prepare themselves to respond to federal and state reporting and labeling requirements regarding PFAS in their products and mitigate their risk of litigation exposure.  This presentation will offer a primer on the current science of PFAS; survey the current and anticipated regulatory and litigation landscape concerning these chemicals; and advise on proactive steps your company or clients can make to address the presence of PFAS in your products.

Allison is a litigator at Nilan Johnson Lewis, P.A.  Allison represents and defends business clients in product liability, commercial disputes, and complex litigation. She brings considerable experience in toxic exposure litigation, notably involving carbon monoxide, PFAS, and 1,4-dioxane.  A skilled writer with a passion for science and medicine, Allison is adept at leveraging the technical aspects of the client’s business to produce persuasive defense positions in the courtroom.
