Williams Company has been offering option agreements in the effort to acquire property rights for the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline. Faherty Law Firm represents many property owners threatened by the pipeline. Mike Faherty has pointed out that the permanent irrevocable options could place and encumbrance, or restriction, on property use for many years without payment of just compensation. Williams refused to compromise on that easement term, but recently reversed its position. Mike Faherty is negotiating easement terms and full just compensation for property owners.
