Recent Developments in Eminent Domain

Learn about the emerging issues with eminent domain and understand how it affects your clients and your practice.

Whether arising under state or federal laws, land rights acquisition by utilizing the eminent domain process is always challenging. Although there are no two projects that are the same, and while states and federal procedures can differ in condemnation, there are common challenges and/or missteps for utilizing eminent domain tools that often arise. This topic will range from understanding negotiation requirements, to utilizing statutory survey entry, documenting communications, preparing final offers, and litigation support in the eminent domain process. As has been in the news in recent years, eminent domain litigation is rapidly-evolving, and novel defense theories are gaining headway against condemning authorities, and we will touch on some of those setbacks during this topic. This topic is intended to aid the novice to expert land acquisition practitioner, surveyors, appraisers, and entities with eminent domain authority in understanding the basic legal concepts, as well as an aid to attorneys new to the field and a refresher for seasoned practitioners.
