Eminent domain

Our eminent domain team has worked on projects to acquire infrastructure by eminent domain. Members of this team have worked on infrastructure projects for pipelines, roads, utilities, fiber optic cable and light rail. This team also represents property owners against state and local governments in condemnation proceedings and taking claims.

The goal of our eminent domain team is to assist our clients in acquiring easements as rapidly as possible through negotiations and to reduce the number that must be acquired in condemnation proceedings. Our detail-oriented team of lawyers recognizes the importance of meeting with clients early on in the project’s development to acquire right of way in a timely manner and avoid delays.

  • Energy, including oil and gas, power and utilities and water  
  • Government relations and public policy
  • Infrastructure
  • Projects
