Bryan Moore’s practice includes a wide range of environmental matters, from waste, water, and air permitting and compliance counseling, to enforcement defense and litigation. In matters arising under nearly every major federal and Texas environmental program, Bryan has represented clients in federal and state courts and before various agencies, such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and the Railroad Commission of Texas. Bryan is a member of the Firm's Management Committee, and Chair of the Firm’s Waste Management & Recycling Practice.

In addition to permitting and enforcement matters, Bryan has assisted clients in rulemaking proceedings and in preparing comments on proposed agency rules at both the state and federal level. Bryan has also counseled clients on environmental audit issues, under both the Texas audit law and federal policy.

Bryan has extensive experience in contested permitting proceedings and enforcement actions, and represents clients in each phase of those matters, from the agency process, to the administrative hearing, and ultimately before the applicable state or federal court to which an appeal may be taken.  Bryan has argued cases in forums ranging from the D.C. Circuit to the Texas State Office of Administrative Hearings.  Although his litigation practice has included various types of matters, Bryan’s core substance matter expertise is in solid waste permitting, regulation, and enforcement.  In that area, Bryan has litigated numerous contested permitting matters resulting in expansions of solid waste landfill facilities throughout Texas, and has represented clients in RCRA enforcement proceedings in multiple EPA regions.  

Bryan is a graduate of Tulane Law School, where he received a Certificate in Environmental Law, served as Editor in Chief of the Tulane Environmental Law Journal, and was a recipient of the Haber Joseph McCarthy Environmental Law Award.  Prior to attending law school, Bryan earned a degree in geology from the University of Alabama, where he was a recipient of the school’s Legacy Environmental Scholarship.
