KBB’s representation in property acquisition matters involves both voluntary acquisitions and involuntary acquisitions with the use of eminent practice where authorized, necessary and appropriate. In this regard, KBB has been instrumental in assembling sites for: (i) redevelopment and economic development projects; (ii) street widening projects for street expansion, and sewer and utility line installation; and (iii) other public use purposes. As planning for property acquisition begins long before an acquisition target is identified, KBB’s full range of experience in successfully negotiating with property owners, utilizing eminent domain litigation where appropriate and necessary to resolve compensation and right to take challenges, as well as relocation, has been a major benefit to its clients. In the area of eminent domain, KBB’s success has been predicated primarily on its ability to apply its expertise to bear on various condemnation and calculation issues peculiar to most municipal projects. The eminent domain aspect of KBB’s acquisition practice offers pre-condemnation services through post-condemnation appeals.
