MSBA is sad to announce the passing of member Herbert “Tripp” Burgunder III, on April 19, 2022. He was 53. 

Tripp was a partner at Rimon Law in Baltimore. He received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University and his law degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law. His primary areas of practice were real estate, land use and zoning, business law, contracts, and landlord/tenant issues. His hallmarks were simple documents and straightforward language. 

In addition to practicing law, Tripp was an adjunct faculty member at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey Law School as an adjunct faculty member in the Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research program. 

Tripp was a member of the Maryland State Bar Association’s Real Estate and Business Law sections. He was a contributing author to the MSBA’s legal treatises Residential Real Property and Practice Manual for the Maryland Attorney. Rimon Law noted on its website that “Tripp counted many of his friends as clients and many of his clients as friends, a testament to his exceptional qualities as both a skilled lawyer and a caring human being. His colleague Marty Schreiber remembers him as “a great friend and colleague to many of us in the real estate bar. He died way too young.”

Tripp is survived by his wife, Tamara; children, Ben, Sam, and Maisie; siblings, Rachel Burgunder (Daniel) Hoch, Brad (Lisa) Burgunder, and his in-laws, Barbara and Ron Lipman. He was predeceased by his parents, Herbert Burgunder Jr., and Sydnee Burgunder.  Services were held April 21 at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.
