SPMS&N Partner Speaks at national Seminar

Posted by Paul R. Scott | Jan 04, 2018 | 0 Comments

Smith Phillips Partner Paul R. Scott speaks at national seminars. Scott was a speaker at the national American Law Institute-American Bar Association advanced seminar on Eminent Domain and Land Value Litigation held in San Francisco, California.

Drawing on his extensive experience representing landowners in eminent domain, or “land taking” cases, Scott addressed the national audience on the trial of condemnation cases. Scott served as outside counsel for the Mississippi State Highway Department and initiated numerous eminent domain cases across North Mississippi throughout the 1980s. He joined the Smith Phillips firm in 1993 and now exclusively represents property owners in his eminent domain practice. Scott is the Mississippi representative in Owners Counsel of America, a national organization that works to defend the rights of private property owners, large and small, locally, and nationally.
“There is no more basic right than the right to private ownership of property” says Scott. “When the government takes private property for public use, it must deal fairly with the landowner and pay full and just compensation for the property taken.”
