We devote a portion of our practice of law to shaping the law of property rights. We accomplish this through a number of means:
1. On a select basis, we represent property or business owners in cases which may establish a legal precedent or advance protections afforded to private property.
2. These cases may require an owner’s defense at either the trial or appellate level.
3. These cases may require extensive litigation with government wherein it is critical to identify not only the principles sought to be established at law, but also to carefully analyze the potential outcomes which may result to the owner.

When issues of private property arise in the legislative process, there may be need for those with experience or knowledge in property rights litigation to testify before legislative bodies.
When knowing of cases which serve as illustrative examples, we also encourage property or business owners affected by property rights issues to participate in the legislative process.
So too, at times, the perspectives of those who advocate for private property rights in the courtroom are essential to drafting new legislation or assisting in legal reforms.
