Benjamin Perdue (“Ben”) is a partner at The Eminent Domain Litigation Group. Ben has spent nearly a decade defending private property rights, representing clients stretching from one corner of Virginia to the other, and dealing with virtually every land use imaginable, from raw land to manufacturing plants. Ben has negotiated multiple multi-million dollar settlements and trialed cases resulting in just compensation verdicts hundreds of times the condemnor’s offer.

When not at work, Ben enjoys spending time with his wife Kelly, dog Evy, and cat Dewey, and can often be found over the stove, cooking a dish from his native Louisiana.
