Expropriation

We have represented landowners in expropriation actions concerning the nature and scope of statutory powers of expropriation, requirements for lawful expropriation, and compensation.

Examples of our recent and current cases include:

  • Representation of landowners in South Louisiana facing appropriation by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for levee construction;
  • Representation of Orleans Parish School Board in expropriation of school facility by LSU and the State of Louisiana, Department of Administration.
