Kevin P. Braig focuses his practice on agribusiness and environmental compliance and litigation. He has experience representing large scale agricultural operations in the area of livestock permitting and in communicating and negotiating with both state and local governments, neighbors and citizens groups, and other members of the national agribusiness community. Kevin also has experience representing clients in cases involving regulatory issues relating to livestock permitting, water, air, solid and hazardous waste, and underground storage tank compliance and closure. Kevin’s clients are involved in a broad range of businesses, including manufacturing, mineral aggregate mining, road salt handling and distribution, construction, real estate, and transportation.

His experience also extends into the gaming arena, with a particular focus on charitable gaming and game software development. Kevin advises clients on issues including registration, record-keeping, licensing and compliance with state and federal law, including the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. He also has defended governmental enforcement actions, and has drafted statutory gaming language for proposed state gaming laws.

Kevin's passion for gaming and software development has led to a number of interesting ventures, including the invention and patenting of an electronic system and exchange that enables educational institutions to manage economic risks associated with intercollegiate athletic and educational programs. Kevin also has authored a number of articles relating to both quantitative analysis and regulation in sports, and participates in the LVH Superbook’s NFL handicapping Super Contest in Las Vegas, which is widely considered the premier contest for NFL handicappers. Additionally, he maintains a website dedicated to objectively quantifying and analyzing NFL coaching through the prism of economic Growth Theory.
