Condemnation or eminent domain is a constitutionally recognized mechanism that can be utilized to obtain an interest in property pursuant to statute. Genova Burns has represented clients whose property has been condemned by a governmental entity and has also represented clients who seek to have property of another condemned for a public purpose. In either event, the procedures and methods of condemnation and the “just compensation” constitutionally prescribed to be paid to the condemnee is central to the process. Genova Burns understands both the administrative and litigation aspects of condemnation and has assisted many clients in obtaining the outcome required by their needs.
