of Land Rights

With the incredible growth in our state, existing right of ways and land rights held by utility providers and the facilities that occupy them are under constant threat of being diminished or lost altogether by encroachments, road widening and improvements, and new development projects. Existing land rights are of incredible value to utility providers, and must be protected in a proactive manner. We assist our clients daily in identifying these threats, evaluating the possible impact to their land rights and facilities, and successfully resolving related conflicts.

Flat Rate
Per Parcel Fees

Our fees are based on results, not hours billed. We have developed a flat-rate per parcel fee structure that is all inclusive for land use permissions. This allows our clients to accurately budget for land rights and protects against run-away acquisition costs. Our clients have found extraordinary benefit to a flat rate per parcel fee structure, especially in challenging negotiations.

Professional Negotiators

We view the expansion of infrastructure as a partnership between landowners and our clients. Every member of our front-facing team is an experienced negotiator with an excellent history of establishing a lasting, positive impression between the parties that encourages cooperation. We dig deep to understand the motivations and possible objections of the parties, then offer solutions that are unique to each individual property and set of circumstances. We will never approach our clients with a problem for which we do not offer a possible solution.

Project Management

The acquisition and management of land rights often requires the resources of complementary disciplines. We have developed a strategic statewide network of title companies, abstractors, land surveyors, appraisers, environmental experts, engineers, and attorneys. We can leverage these resources as needed to provide all-inclusive, turn-key land rights support based on the individual needs of our clients.
