Extraordinarily Knowledgeable Consumer Class Actions May Be the Next Wave of PFAS Litigation

news | July 3, 2024

In a article, firm partners Matt Malinowski, Gary Feldon, and Sebastian Ovalle say a new wave of PFAS litigation has begun. If it gains momentum, it could be the biggest yet.

They advise manufacturing and retail industries to position themselves now for what may come next in the evolving field of PFAS litigation by proactively addressing potential grounds for PFAS consumer claims, reviewing public-facing policies, labeling, and advertising to ensure compliance, and including PFAS disclosure and indemnification provisions in contracts with vendors. Companies who are already likely targets for PFAS consumer class actions may want to retain counsel to develop a litigation risk mitigation strategy before lawsuits are filed.
