Partner Arun Sharma speaks on the panel “Impact of PFAS on Environmental Litigation” at the October 27 Perrin Environmental Risk and Litigation Conference. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries worldwide since the 1940s. They are used in food packaging, commercial household products such as Teflon, and in production facilities. PFAS do not break down and can accumulate in fish, animals, and humans over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.
Mr. Sharma and his co-panelists will discuss PFAS exposure sources, transport issues, disposal, and potential regulatory changes and the impact those may have on litigation and pollution claims for insurers. Mr. Sharma’s co-panelists include Scott L. Davis from Husch Blackwell, John P. Gardella from CMBG3, Frank Pagone from RHP Risk Management, and David Schechter from the Beazley Group.
