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 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.  He chairs the firm’s Waste Management and Recycling Practice. 

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.  The case was one of first impression 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.  These expansions provide much needed waste disposal capacity for the rapidly growing Central Texas area.

Bryan is recognized in the 2011-2015 editions of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business in environmental law. 

He was elected by his peers for inclusion in the 2012-2018 editions of The Best Lawyers in America in the field of environmental law, and was named Best Lawyers’ 2016-17 “Lawyer of the Year” in Austin Environmental Law, having previously received this recognition in 2014-2015. 

At Tulane Law School, Bryan served as Editor in Chief of the Tulane Environmental Law Journal, and was a recipient of the Haber Joseph McCarthy Environmental Law Award.
