Manatt Partner Honored by Owners’ Counsel

Manatt partner Michael M. Berger, co-chair of the firm’s Appellate Practice Group, was honored by the Owners’ Counsel of America (OCA) with the prestigious Crystal Eagle Award for his “devotion to defending Americans and their private property in eminent domain, regulatory takings, inverse condemnation, land use litigation and on appeal.”  The award was presented at a national OCA gala on February 19.

Berger, OCA said in a press release, is “not only one of the country's preeminent appellate lawyers, but also one of the nation's top condemnation and land use attorneys.  For more than 40 years, Michael Berger, has consistently sought to advance the cause of private property rights throughout California and the United States.”

The Crystal Eagle Award is presented annually to individuals who have made a substantial contribution toward advancing the cause of property rights.
