Through our Real Estate, Municipal Government and Litigation & Dispute Resolution practices, Foster Pepper has developed the resources to manage virtually any property acquisition or condemnation proceeding. We have played a significant role in the development of cities and counties throughout Washington (and in the Pacific Northwest) and continue to maintain the resources to manage both simple and complex property acquisitions and condemnation proceedings.
We have substantial experience representing municipal clients in acquisition projects, such as transit stations and rail corridors, arterial street development and expansion, utility corridor development, convention centers and municipal purchase and condemnation of private utility systems, and transit-oriented development.
Our firm also represents private property owners facing condemnation proceedings. We have experience on both sides of the property acquisition issue, which enables us to often develop strategies that avoid condemnation litigation, but our experience also allows us to represent clients in trial when necessary.
