Electric Transmission Lines
The Supreme Court has held that any permanent public taking — no matter how small — requires the payment of just compensation. At Denlow & Henry, our lawyers are in the business of helping property owners get just compensation for their property loss. We've been practicing eminent domain law for more than 40 years. If a power company is threatening to place high-voltage power lines or transmission towers on your property, we can help.
Eminent Domain Actions Involving Electric Lines and Other Electric Utilities
Electric companies often run unsightly power lines over and through residences, farms and businesses, and place transmission towers on private property. These electric transmission lines can destroy aesthetic views, require tree removal and diminish property values. Electric transmission towers can also impair property use, making it more difficult to farm, develop and sell land.
At Denlow & Henry, our attorneys understand the negative effects property lines and transmission towers have on our clients' properties. Over the years, we have successfully helped many Missouri property owners enforce their rights under eminent domain laws and obtain just compensation from electric companies.

What Are My Rights?
Many residential and commercial property owners do not realize they have a right to compensation for the electric lines and towers placed on their properties. If even a portion of your property is used by electric companies for their utilities, you deserve just compensation.
Just compensation includes not only the value of the property lost to electric utilities, but also damage done to the remaining property.
At Denlow & Henry, we have gone up against some of the state's largest electric companies and co-ops, such as the Ameren-UE, Kansas City Power & Light and Sho-Me Electric Co-op. We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
