Quantification of Disturbance Damages Related to Expropriation of Farm

Matter involving the quantification of disturbance damages (i.e. business losses and out-of-pockets expenses) due to the expropriation and relocation of a cash crops farm.

We were retained by the owners of a corn and soybean farm who were forced to relocate when their land was expropriated to extend Highway 407 east.

This case involved financial issues related specifically to farming, including estimating yields on lost lands and incremental transportation and drying costs.  Our report quantifying the business losses and out-of-pocket costs caused by the relocation formed the basis for settlement discussions. The matter settled in mediation.
