A seasoned and internationally-recognized litigator, advocate, and author, Rob Bilott represents a diverse range of clients on a wide variety of matters involving federal, state, and local environmental laws.
Bilott has gained international prominence in connection with uncovering and disclosing the world-wide impact of environmental contamination by the “forever chemicals” known as PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkylated substances), particularly PFOA and PFOS. To date Rob has secured benefits in excess of $1 billion for clients adversely impacted by PFAS contamination.
Bilott’s story is chronicled in his book, Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer’s Twenty-Year Battle against DuPont, and is the inspiration for the feature film, Dark Waters and documentary, The Devil We Know. Dark Waters will be screened at IU Cinema at 7:00 p.m.
This event is sponsored by O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Maurer School of Law, the Integrated Program in the Environment, the Environmental Resilience Institute, and the College of Arts and Sciences’ Themester 2021: Resilience.
