Raymond Daniel Burke is a shareholder in Baker Donelson’s Baltimore office. One of the region’s top construction and real estate development lawyers, Mr. Burke has built a substantial trial and appellate practice, and is noted for numerous cases relating to condominium and other multi-use development.

He frequently represents condominium and homeowner associations and property managers in connection with building-related issues, particularly involving code compliance, deviations from industry standards, structural integrity, and water intrusion.

He works with skilled engineering and architectural consultants in the identification of building defects, the specification of proper repairs, the pursuit and resolution of claims relating to improper construction, the implementation of repairs, and the remediation of mold and environmental contamination.
