Mediation of Eminent Domain Cases
Resolving disputed compensation for landowners when governments, energy, or utility companies acquire private real estate
After gaining experience on the government side as Chief Civil Counsel for the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney, Frank A. Ray also represented landowners in situations where government — federal, state, and local — or public utilities acquired their private real estate for a public project. During his years as a trial lawyer in private practice, Frank prevailed in a number of jury trials representing landowners in eminent domain disputes. In 2012, as trial counsel for an owner of industrial property acquired for a highway improvement project, Mr. Ray coordinated and orchestrated a multi-million dollar settlement involving approximately twenty parties in interest. Other parties' counsel for this case have publicly referred to the litigation as one of the most complex cases in the history of Ohio eminent domain litigation.
Drawing on his experience in the trial and negotiation of eminent domain cases, Mr. Ray offers insight and guidance to government, utility and energy companies, and landowners to help to resolve disputed land appropriation lawsuits by mediation.
