Jackson Walker attorneys Brad Anderson and Noah Galton served as guest lecturers for the Eminent Domain and Private Property Rights course at the University of Texas School of Law. Their lecture covered the measurement of just compensation in the acquisition of property rights for public projects.
W. Brad Anderson is an eminent domain attorney with extensive experience representing both condemning authorities and landowners in Texas. In his time with Jackson Walker, Brad has facilitated the acquisition of hundreds of parcels of land needed for a variety of public projects, and has represented landowners seeking just compensation related to the public projects affecting their property. This breadth of experience has given Brad a comprehensive understanding of how concepts of just compensation are viewed and evaluated by the parties involved and the fact finders who ultimately decide the issue.

In the context of eminent domain, Noah has represented numerous entities in the acquisition of real property rights for public projects aimed at expanding critical infrastructure in Texas, including oil/gas midstream and interstate pipeline companies, railroads, municipal utility districts, regional mobility authorities, and electricity providers.
