Rula Deeb Presented at the 2nd Energy and Environmental Law Conference

Rula Deeb, Ph.D., BCEEM, PMP co-presented “PFAS as Emerging Contaminants – Why They Matter in the Energy Industry” at the 2nd Energy and Environmental Law Conference. Hosted by The Center for American and International Law (CAIL), the online conference was held March 24-25, 2021.

Rula’s co-presenters were Linda Hall, Ph.D., and Keith Petka.

Rula Deeb is a Senior Principal based in California with more than 25 years of experience in private practice and academia addressing the cross-media fate and transport of contaminants and the remediation of complex soil and groundwater sites. Focusing on emerging contaminants, Rula has led strategic planning, business development, and project execution for a variety of industrial, municipal, and federal clients.

The 2nd Energy and Environmental Law Conference looked at the current hot topics of environmental law for the energy industry, offered guidance for energy companies and their legal representatives on important environmental legal topics, and looked at what the energy industry is likely to experience on the road ahead.

CAIL is a nonprofit institution dedicated to improving the quality of justice through the education of lawyers and law enforcement officials in the United States and throughout the world.


In this moment, every legal conference covering environmental issues includes a presentation on PFAS and emerging contaminants. Regulatory uncertainty and litigation risk abound, but what is the real relevance of this issue to the energy industry? This panel discussion, which includes voices from industry policy and technical perspectives, will answer this question and provide a focused analysis of the issues that energy industry counsel need to consider in the strategic management of legacy and future liabilities.
