Baldwin Haspel Burke & Mayer LLC



Environmental Representation for Industrial Clients

Environmental issues often create obstacles for business transactions. Baldwin Haspel Burke & Mayer provides competent solutions to those obstacles. Our industrial and commercial clients are able to quickly put our advice into practice. Clients contact us after receiving an unfavorable report. In all situations, we assist clients with keeping costs and investments in check.

Our environmental practice also handles litigation when clients face an enforcement action, an environmental incident, or a cost-recovery claim, working to control costs as we seek a rational outcome. Business owners consult with BHBM to protect their interests during contracting and scoping stages and when unforeseen events result in post-project disputes.

BHBM attorneys offer decades of federal and state experience concerning environmental law issues. Our attorneys include a real estate and environmental attorney with a master’s degree (LL.M.) in environmental law, who has written a handbook on Louisiana environmental law.
