It is our mission to hold the State of Illinois and utilities accountable to provide just compensation to landowners. Besides the State of Illinois, landowners can have their land taken by eminent domain and condemnation by utility companies–including water departments and electric and pipeline companies. These takings can include sewer installations, electric line construction, natural gas pipelines, oil pipelines and even coal gasification pipelines.

These types of takings present specific challenges to the landowner. They require certain expertise to properly evaluate. In many instances, landowners will need special experts to properly develop the case.

At Sever Storey, we have experience dealing with utility cases. We have represented numerous Illinois clients on sewer, pipeline and electric line installations. In each of these cases we were able to bring together the right team to hold the utility company accountable.
