Representing Landowners and Condemnors

Axley attorneys represent both landowners and condemnors (acquiring agencies) in condemnation matters throughout Wisconsin. We combine up-to-date knowledge of eminent domain law with decades of negotiation, litigation, and trial experience to get the best possible result for our clients.

We work closely our condemnor clients to facilitate the careful, competent, and cost-effective acquisition of property rights needed for public projects. We assist in highway, aeronautic, utility, and municipal acquisitions under both § 32.05 and § 32.06 of the Wisconsin Statutes.

We also work closely with our landowner clients to maximize compensation, ensure fair treatment by the condemnor, and minimize negative impacts of the project on their overall interests. We guide our clients through all phases of the acquisition process, from negotiation through litigation, if necessary.

With our network of engineers, appraisers, right-of-way agents, contractors, and other specialists around the state, we can assemble the right team for our clients’ best interests.

Finally, Axley attorneys handle right-to-take challenges, regulatory takings, inverse condemnation claims, relocation claims, replacement property issues, writs of assistance, and many other legal issues that arise when a public project affects private property. Whether the claim arises in state or federal court, we provide clients with the highest quality representation.
