Burdine Wynne eminent domain and condemnation lawyers represent land owners who have been forced to confront governmental entities or common carriers taking their land for an alleged public use. The firm works with seasoned real estate appraisal experts, business experts and accounting experts to recover just compensation for land owners in Texas and across the country.

All property is unique and critically important to its owners.  Property rights are of course among the most important bedrock principles on which this country was founded.  Burdine Wynne is proud to work diligently to protect those rights. 

The firm represented Exxon Mobil Corp. in a Louisiana eminent domain case involving the taking of ExxonMobil’s salt dome and oil storage caverns that were ultimately appraised at over $500 million. The firm also pursued a lease termination damage claim in addition to the loss of property value in the amount of $220 million.  The case settled on the eve of trial after Burdine Wynne successfully responded to dispositive motions seeking to exclude the expert appraisal methodology and dismiss the lease termination damage claim asserted by ExxonMobil.
