Wisconsin has a law that allows landowners to recover all attorneys fees and expenses from the government/utility company through the eminent domain process. There are a number of different scenarios where this is possible. One of the more common scenarios, however, is that landowners can recover all of their attorney fees and expenses when they ultimately recover 15% more than the amount of the jurisdictional offer from a jury or condemnation commission. The jurisdictional offer is the last offer from the government/utility company before using the eminent domain power.
