C. Boyden Gray has been actively involved in environmental law and energy policy for over three decades. During the early 1980s, Gray served as Counsel to the Presidential Task Force on Regulatory Relief, and in that capacity he was involved in the phaseout of leaded gasoline. During the 1990s, as White House Counsel for President George H.W. Bush, Gray was instrumental in the enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 and the Energy Policy Act of 1992. Gray played a key role in framing the Clean Air Act’s Acid Rain Program, a ground-breaking market-based approach to environmental regulation. He teaches a course on Environmental and Energy Law at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School. Today, Boyden Gray and Associates represents clients in the energy, agriculture, and non-profit sectors on environmental law and regulatory matters before the Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies, the White House, Congress, and the courts. The firm’s environmental law practice includes automotive and fuel regulation, agriculture law, climate law, and air quality regulation.
