WINNING WITH CONSENSUS, TRUST AND INTEGRITY

BG_Success_TheAlliance_Page_1When cattleman and fifth-generation Texas rancher, Whit Jones learned his family’s and many of his neighbors’ properties were in the proposed path of one of the largest transmission-line projects in the state, he wasted no time contacting Braun & Gresham for help. In this new firm success story, learn how Patrick Reznik, working with friends, foes & exceptional experts, helped a large group of landowners preserve more than 200,000 acres of South Texas’ largest legacy ranches.

As one of only a handful of firms equipped to lead clients whose land is threatened by CREZ transmission projects through the entire legal process, Braun & Gresham, PLLC finds teamwork is key to ensuring energy transmission lines don’t destroy property values.

By working as a team, they were able to create a unified voice against the utility’s transmission project and ultimately redirect the line onto a different route.
