Eminent Domain

Goldfarb & Lipman has guided our public clients in the acquisition of all kinds of properties and property interests through voluntary negotiations as well as condemnation.  We have handled basic to complex acquisition projects ranging from a single parcel to the acquisition and assembly of multiple parcels for redevelopment, road construction, right-of-way, and street widening projects.


The value we provide to clients is in our ability to identify early and address unique issues that arise in an acquisition context, including clearing clouds on title, relocation of business facilities, complex goodwill issues, valuation issues, easement rights, temporary interference with business operations, acquisition of outdoor advertising, and hazardous materials remediation.


We help our clients undertake the various activities which precede or accompany the filing of eminent domain actions.  Our attorneys also have extensive experience in the litigation of issues that may affect condemnation, valuation of property, and the right to take.
