Condemnation Proceedings For Oil And Gas Pipeline Projects

The attorneys at Lavery Law have in-depth knowledge of the eminent domain (sometimes called condemnation) procedure and the nuances of Pennsylvania laws. Our firm has unique experience advocating for individuals and for business owners in these complex projects.

Due to the boom in oil and gas pipeline project exploration and development in Pennsylvania, there has been an increased necessity for pipelines to transport the product to the East Coast refineries. Pipeline projects are approved for virtually all parts of the state, and more are in the planning process. At Lavery Law, we stand ready to help property owners statewide with their property issues with the oil and gas companies.

Understanding The Eminent Domain Process

The process in which an entity can initiate a total or partial taking for an oil, gas or pipeline project is very specific. We take a very hands-on approach to walking clients throughout the legal process and what elements of a project you are able to negotiate to protect your rights.

The attorneys at our firm are ready to help review the access agreement, property easements and help explain how the total compensation package affects a landowner. This includes a review of eminent domain authority and the status of whether or not the company has the power to start the eminent domain process.
