David C. Scott, a partner in the firm’s Environmental Department, will be a panelist for a presentation on the latest developments surrounding PFAS for the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). The meeting will be hosted by the AGC’s Environmental Steering Committee on Thursday, February 8, 2024, from 11:00am – 12:00pm at the AGC’s headquarters in Arlington, VA.
The objective of this panel discussion is to provide meeting attendees with a better understanding of recent developments related to PFAS and their potential impact on the construction industry. Mr. Scott will focus primarily on the latest federal (EPA- RCRA/CERCLA) and various pending state regulations surrounding PFAS, including legal considerations related to real estate.
Mr. Scott's environmental law practice emphasizes transactions, permitting, and regulatory compliance. He primarily provides counsel on environmental risks associated with real estate and business transactions, methods for mitigating those risks, and strategies for addressing environmental issues when they do arise, including the presence of hazardous substances in soil and groundwater, discharges from underground storage tanks, and the cleanup and remediation of contaminated sites.
AGC of America is the leading association for the construction industry. With over 27,000 member firms, AGC provides a full range of services satisfying the needs and concerns of its members, thereby improving the quality of construction and protecting the public interest.
