Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner has extensive experience representing both landowners and condemning authorities in eminent domain actions. Our attorneys have successfully handled and tried eminent domain matters in state and federal courts in numerous jurisdictions. Furthermore, we have significant appellate experience in condemnation matters, including a recent landmark decision in Department of Transportation, State of Colorado v.

In addition to representing entities with condemnation authority, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner regularly defends landowners and tenants in condemnation actions filed by highway authorities and municipalities, represents lenders in eminent domain actions against secured properties, and represents investors in due diligence of properties subject to threatened condemnations. Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner achieves outstanding results by combining its decades of nationwide experience counseling clients on eminent domain issues with its local land use and litigation experience.
