Silent Spring meets Erin Brockovich in the eye-opening, true story of lawyer Robert Bilott. Exposure tells of the lawyer who spent two decades building a case against DuPont for its use of the hazardous, unregulated chemical PFOA. This riveting novel uncovers a history of environmental contamination that affects virtually every person on the planet, and the heartless behavior that kept it a secret for sixty years.
Robert Bilott is a partner at the law firm Taft Stettinius & Hollister in Cincinnati, Ohio where he has practiced environmental law and litigation for more than twenty-eight years. He is a former chair of the Cincinnati Bar Association’s Environmental Law Committee and a graduate of the New College (B.A.) and the Ohio State University College of Law (J.D., cum laude). In 2017, Rob received the international Right Livelihood Award, commonly known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize” for his years of work on PFOA.
