The Impact of PFAS and Expanding PFAS Litigation on the Construction Industry in Minnesota – What You and Your Clients Need to Know

Event Description

Hybrid Event - Choose Participation Type at Registration

This seminar will address the potential future impact of PFAS (ie "forever chemicals") on the construction industry, including emerging litigation and risk mitigation strategies for contractors. The seminar is directed toward attorneys who represent construction contractors, designers, architects, engineers, owners and developers to prepare for anticipated PFAS impact on their practice. In addition to thousands of suits against manufacturers, PFAS lawsuits have been filed against non-manufacturers such as water plants, paper mills, container board plants and recycling facilities. This seminar is designed to prepare attorneys for the potential impact of PFAS litigation on the construction industry as emerging lawsuits take the next step moving from the larger manufacturers (DuPont and 3M) to downstream products.

 *Lunch will be provided to those in person
