Gregory Morrison has an array of experience in water, environmental, natural resource, and real property law matters. Greg advises a variety of private and public interests on matters involving water acquisition and permitting, environmental compliance on the state and federal level, and property development and disputes.

Greg began his career in Carson City, Nevada, where he was immediately immersed in the most extensive administrative hearing involving water rights applications in the history of the Nevada State Engineer.  Greg remained involved in the administrative, district court, and Nevada Supreme Court processes of that matter throughout his tenure in Carson City.

Greg has worked in conjunction with municipal, tribal, and institutional parties toward the adoption of the 2008 Truckee River Operating Agreement (TROA) as a federal regulation, a process that involved administrative hearings in Nevada and California, modification of the 1944 federal court decree governing Truckee River operations, and multiple appeals in both state and federal courts. 

Following a lateral move to Santa Barbara, California, Greg returned home to northern Nevada in 2016 to Parsons Behle & Latimer’s Reno office.  Since joining PB&L’s team, Greg has worked in water right permitting and maintenance for several of the firm’s clients in the mining industry throughout Nevada.  Greg has worked with municipal water providers to protect and maintain water rights in order to ensure reliable supplies for their customers.  Greg has also worked with developers and landowners to secure and permit water rights for commercial and residential projects, and has litigated water forfeitures, as well as landlord/tenant disputes.
