Parker Poe attorneys have more than 200 years of combined experience helping clients navigate the complexities of eminent domain laws and condemnation procedures. Our team includes the author of the original textbook on eminent domain laws in Georgia, as well as the current editor of the Georgia chapter in the authoritative compendium on eminent domain laws across the United States. Our attorneys in the Carolinas and Georgia are nationally recognized, including through speaking at conferences around the country and rankings in The Best Lawyers in America and Benchmark Litigation.
We represent a broad spectrum of businesses and commercial property owners as well as governmental entities and utilities with property interests and projects in the Southeast. Our experience representing both property owners and condemning authorities results in a well-rounded perspective and comprehensive approach to formulating strategies and trying cases – we understand every aspect of eminent domain and have built relationships across this area of law.
We also invest the time to understand the individual needs of each client. We consider ourselves their partners, helping them work through what can be a daunting process. This customized approach, combined with our deep experience, enables us to drive negotiations for compensation and reach resolutions that make business sense.
Our clients also benefit from the strength of our entire 275-attorney firm stretching from Atlanta to Washington, DC. Our team frequently collaborates with our broader real estate, energy, environmental, and local government teams.
