Right-of-Way Acquisition / Condemnation for Pipelines and Utilities

Hall Estill attorneys assist clients in right-of-way acquisitions for pipelines, railways and roadways. We can take a client through the full life cycle of the matter from offer and sale negotiation to conveyance of an interest or total rights to a property. Whether through a mutual surface use agreement, litigation between parties or eminent domain, we will work with you to find the best solution for your business.

Services our attorneys provide for right-of-ways include:

  • Cost Estimating 
  • Permitting
  • Acquisition
  • Negotiations
  • Drafting of easements, surface access and related documents to confirm the existence of a right-of-way
  • Construction Damage Settlements 

In addition, we are able to assist clients with matters dealing with condemnation of pipelines and utilities. This includes the negotiation of easements for pipelines and transmission lines going through a property, and if negotiations are not successful, litigating the eminent domain issues of compensation and restoration damages.
