Environmental and Toxic Tort
The Environmental and Toxic Tort Committee focuses on existing and emerging issues in the environmental, pollution and mass tort context. This encompasses long tail claims (asbestos, pre-1986 pollution, lead paint) as well as claims submitted on currently issued policies (failure to properly remediate asbestos, groundwater monitoring, spill clean-up and chemical exposure). The Committee generates articles and conducts webinars to educate all CLM members and fellows on these issues. We also present a Mini-Conference annually in conjunction with Construction Defect. Our monthly calls include a “Roundtable” section in which topics of interest to all subgroups in environmental claims are discussed and various viewpoints presented by counsel, industry members and environmental consultants.
We are looking for speakers to highlight interesting topics on our conference calls. This is a wonderful opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise with your fellow committee members. If you would like to be a speaker or nominate someone to speak on our calls, please let us know. We will post an announcement in advanced of each call with speaker/topic details.
Our next call will take place on Tuesday, April 23rd.
Please feel free to reach out to your chairs with ideas.
