Main Content

Welcome to the “EMERGING CONTAMINANTS/EMERGING SOLUTIONS” blog.  We  understand that businesses need up-to-date information regarding their regulatory obligations and litigation risk.

Our goal here is to provide our readers with some of that information as it relates to “emerging” contaminants, meaning those that have escaped regulation to date, but are now targets of the federal, state and local regulators, as well as “emerging” solutions, which include novel ways to address contamination and environmental/toxic tort litigation, such as the use of DNA evidence.

We hope that manufacturers, retailers, and other entities in the product distribution chain, as well as owners and operators of contaminated property, will find this blog useful.
