Maram T. Salaheldin
Maram T. Salaheldin provides environmental management and regulatory compliance support to U.S. and multinational clients, with an emphasis on risks and liabilities arising under environmental, health, safety, and sustainability (EHS&S) laws.
She counsels clients on EHS&S considerations related to the lifecycle of their operations and products, particularly during periods of change, such as expansion into new areas and markets. This includes assisting clients in assessing potential business impacts and opportunities related to emerging trends in law and policy, including developments in international treaties and agreements, such as the Basel Convention and the Montreal Protocol.
Maram’s practice also includes helping clients manage risks arising in international transactions that involve hardware, software, technology, and services subject to the U.S. Export Administration Regulations (EAR), International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and similar regulatory controls.
In addition to compliance support, Maram provides consultation to clients on environmental management system (EMS) development and implementation, including internal EMS conformance auditing. She aids clients in achieving an effective EMS to manage their organization-specific environmental risks and to contribute to the success of their broader environmental, social, and governance (ESG) program.
Prior to joining Clark Hill, Maram worked in EHS&S compliance and management systems consulting, interpreting and implementing practical applications of U.S. regulations, foreign laws, and international treaties and agreements for government and commercial clients across diverse sectors. Her support to government clients included the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), National Institutes of Health (NIH), United States Geological Survey (USGS), and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). Her private sector experience featured consultation services to several Fortune 500 companies on EHS and product stewardship compliance for multiple jurisdictions throughout the Middle East and Africa, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, Mauritius, and the Seychelles.
Maram is also an international speaker and trainer in the EHS&S management and compliance field. She is fluent in English and Arabic (native speaker), has professional working proficiency in French, and has limited working proficiency in Spanish.
