Eminent Domain

Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie represents utility companies, government entities, special districts, and private landowners in connection with taking real property through the exercise of eminent domain. We represent both private and commercial landowners in defense against government condemnation actions. We also assist government entities in planning public improvement projects to minimize the costs associated with land acquisition, and to acquire property rights through condemnation, if needed.

Our broad experience with condemnation includes projects such as state, county, and municipal road and highway development, urban renewal and redevelopment, electric transmission lines and related facilities, water pipelines, gas transmission lines, drainage facilities, railroad properties, open space projects, and water treatment plants.

Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie's attorneys have experience handling matters with unique legal issues, including the acquisition of complex easements and commercial leasehold interests.
