Bryan helps industrial, commercial, and oil and gas industry clients navigate and resolve contested environmental permitting proceedings, compliance audits, enforcement actions, and litigation so they can construct, operate, and expand their facilities.
Whether in the substantive area of waste, water, or air regulation, Bryan provides comprehensive representation and strategic counseling from the agency rulemaking and permitting process to the administrative hearing and, ultimately, before the court to which an appeal may be taken. Bryan represents clients in matters arising under nearly every major federal and Texas environmental program in state and federal courts, as well as before agencies including the U.S. EPA, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the Railroad Commission of Texas.
Bryan’s litigation successes include:
Securing a ruling from the Texas Third Court of Appeals, upholding a Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit for a power plant facility, one of the first impressions in Texas concerning the requirements for “cooling water intake structures” for existing power plants.
In three separate appellate cases, securing rulings from the Texas Third Court of Appeals and Seventh Court of Appeals upholding permits authorizing the expansions of three Central Texas municipal solid waste landfill facilities, providing much-needed waste disposal capacity for the rapidly growing Central Texas area.
