Noah focuses on commercial litigation, including eminent domain, real estate litigation, energy litigation, litigating issues surrounding governmental/sovereign immunity, and general business litigation. His eminent domain practice involves representation of river authorities, electricity providers, oil/gas midstream and interstate pipeline companies, railroads, municipal utility districts, special utility districts, municipalities, and independent school districts in the acquisition of real property rights for extensive public projects aimed at expanding critical infrastructure in Texas. In addition, Noah has wide-ranging experience representing landowners seeking to secure just compensation in eminent domain matters, including individual property owners, residential and commercial developers, and business owners.
