The Owners’ Counsel of America recently honored one of the country?s top condemnation and property rights attorneys, Toby Prince Brigham, Esq., for his devotion to the constitutional right of private property ownership. For more than 50 years, Toby Brigham, has represented property owners in Florida and across the United States in eminent domain, inverse condemnation, regulatory taking challenges, condemnation blight, and related real estate, land use and business damage litigation at both the trial and appellate level.
A graduate of Yale University (?56) and the University of Florida College of Law (?59), Mr. Brigham has dedicated his law practice exclusively to the defense of private property rights. At the time he began practicing law, eminent domain was hardly a special area of practice let alone the widely known hot button issue it is today. In fact, Toby Brigham helped to develop the field of eminent domain, particularly the representation of property owners in condemnation litigation, as a focused discipline. As a past planning co-chair and current faculty member of the American Bar Association-American Law Institute (ALI-ABA) annual Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation course, he has sought for over two decades to educate and inspire other lawyers in the complexities of eminent domain law and the importance of private property ownership. Mr. Brigham has also lectured and written extensively on topics concerning condemnation, just compensation and private property rights.

As component of an arrangement among the ACT and Commonwealth Governments, the land on which Canberra Hospital once stood on Acton Peninsula was "swapped" for lake-front land at Kingston, in order to construct the National Museum of Australia. Because 1998, the ACT has been progressively (re-)creating the land at Kingston for high value, medium and high density housing, commercial offices and retail space, and consists of the creation of a artificial harbour (on the shores of an artifical lake!).
