Beveridge & Diamond, P.C., September 17, 2014

Washington, DC and Austin, TX – Best Lawyers has named Beveridge & Diamond Principal Bryan Moore the 2014-15 “Lawyer of the Year” for Environmental Law in Austin, Texas.  Best Lawyers bestows “Lawyer of the Year” honors on only one lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area.

Bryan helps industrial, commercial, and oil and gas industry clients navigate and resolve contested environmental permitting proceedings, 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’s recent litigation successes include:

  • 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.  The three cases are captioned:
  • 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.  Read more about this case and read the court’s opinion.

Wilson, Beveridge & Diamond’s Managing Principal. “Bryan’s cordial manner, exceptional client service, and mastery of environmental litigation strategy and trial tactics benefit our clients in Texas and around the country.”
