Eminent Domain/Condemnation


Spencer Fane attorneys have been active on virtually all sides of the land acquisition process in eminent domain law representing both private and governmental entities. Our clients include individual landowners, developers, public utility providers, counties, municipalities, urban renewal authorities, and special districts. We have counseled and represented clients through every stage of condemnation cases—from preliminary negotiations for the acquisition of property, to the institution of condemnation proceedings, to the ultimate determination of just compensation through litigation. Our lawyers have been involved in major condemnation proceedings for the acquisition of land for a variety of uses, including a multi-county lake project, light rail projects, processing, industrial facilities, and redevelopment projects.
