Managing Partner Noel Edlin and Associate Sean K. Herman will share cutting-edge insights on the risks associated with per fluorinated compounds (PFCs) at the Emerging and Environmental Claims Managers Association (EECMA) Conference in Orlando, FL on April 8. Human health toxicologist Janet K. Anderson from Integral Consulting will co-present.

Per fluorinated compounds (PFCs) are emerging contaminants in their own class and their potential toxicity is only now becoming clear. These chemicals are of particular concern because they are man-made, ubiquitous, and degrade very slowly. Due to increased scrutiny of PFCs, related personal injury claims are on the rise. Such claims suggest that companies using these chemicals in their products are quickly becoming the targets for further litigation.
