Jane Fredman and paralegal Juanita Kelley have extensive experience working with landowners placing conservation easements on their properties.
We can assist the landowner in selecting the land trust or government entity that will be the most appropriate stewardship partner, facilitate government and/or private grant acquisition to maximize the value of the easement, and oversee the myriad of complex issues that must be addressed to ensure the landowner’s tax benefits and conservation purposes for the property are fully achieved.
