Gregory S. Braker

Gregory Braker provides efficient and valued solutions to environmental problems.

He focuses particularly on issues affecting construction and development, transportation, distribution, manufacturing, and electric-utility companies. His experience includes:

National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review;
National Historic Preservation Act compliance;
Endangered Species Act (and related RTE species) permitting;
Clean water compliance -- wetland permitting, discharge permitting, storm water management and spill-response planning;
Hazardous substance compliance -- Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) permitting, underground storage tank (UST) monitoring, and reporting related to the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), Toxic Substances Control Act(TCSA) and Department of Transportation(DOT) requirements;
Clean air compliance and Occupational Health and Safety Act issues -- including asbestos/lead/mold abatement requirements and vapor intrusion standards; and
Site assessment and remediation in Superfund, RCRA and transactional contexts.


Mr. Braker directs environmental audits, advises clients on disclosure issues and designs and implements corporate-compliance programs and environmental management systems.

He works closely (often on site) with clients so that he can gain a full understanding of their goals and business values, which helps him to identify key legal and practical issues early on. This has led a number of clients to comment that he functions with the mentality of in-house counsel in meeting their needs.
