We represent public agencies and other acquiring entities in the acquisition of right of way and other property for the most important infrastructure projects in California, including major road, rail, flood control, utility, and school projects. We also represent landowners and business owners facing both full and partial takings in a wide variety of contexts.

Nossaman's Eminent Domain and Valuation Practice Group and its courtroom successes consistently garner statewide attention. Nossaman's attorneys include some of the top and most skilled technical experts in the state, with experience in all aspects of California eminent domain law.

The breadth and depth of our experience allows us to handle all aspects of condemnation litigation, from elaborate precondemnation planning for acquiring entities, landowners, and business owners, to final resolution, whether through settlement, jury verdict, or published appellate opinion.

Our attorneys have an enviable record of trial success, including many multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. We have successfully litigated eminent domain issues before the California Supreme Court and have won several key appellate decisions. Those appellate decisions have played a major role in shaping the law of eminent domain in California. Click for a list of our published Eminent Domain decisions.
