Serving the Minerals Industry

Baird Hanson LLP (BHLLP) is a law partnership, with a practice limited to natural resources and environmental law, dedicated to providing high quality cost-effective legal services to the minerals industries by using a combination of experience, practice emphasis and technology.

Experience • Collectively, we have over sixty years of experience with natural resources and environmental law issues from both in-house and outside counsel perspectives in such diverse roles as:

  • President of the Northwest Mining Association (American Exploration and Mining Association)
  • Trustee of the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation
  • Chair of American Bar Association Committees
  • Executive Director of a major environmental public interest group
  • Trustee of the American Exploration and Mining Association

Practice Emphasis • Since forming this law partnership in 1997, more than 95% of our work has been related to mining and mineral processing issues. Our emphasis on serving the minerals industries keeps us abreast of rapidly changing legal, technical, political and economic issues, as well as opportunities affecting the industry.

Technology • We use technology to communicate with our clients in real time and to minimize overhead. As a result, our clients receive the benefit of our collective experiences and practice emphasis without having to pay for expensive office space, associates, permanent support staff, or a library that technology and electronic resources have rendered obsolete.

Our unique combination of experience, practice emphasis and technology allows BHLLP to be the most tightly integrated environmental and natural resources law team anywhere.
