Condemnation & Eminent Domain

The taking of property by the government under the power of eminent domain or condemnation is a unique and often unsettling experience. Once the government begins a formal condemnation, the process can prove to be both protracted and contentious. Maslon attorneys are here to assist you through the condemnation process at all levels from the initial Commissioner's hearing to the Supreme Court, to protect your right to just compensation and, when possible, to negotiate with governmental entities for measures that will lessen the impact of a condemnation on the use and enjoyment of a property.

Indirect condemnation issues may also arise in the context of zoning and other regulations, and Maslon attorneys have the experience to determine when regulation crosses the threshold of an inverse condemnation. We have represented owners of all types of properties, from large commercial businesses to small family-owned businesses, from farms to gas stations to mines. Property owners affected by condemnation are often entitled to relocation benefits under state and federal law, and our attorneys are available to assist you with evaluating and pursuing such claims.
