Total Taking of Blackstone’s Airport-Oriented Hilton Hotel

Represented an affiliate of The Blackstone Group, LP in defense against the taking of the Fort Lauderdale Airport Hilton for the expansion airport runway. Vigorously fought Broward County with the former National Director of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and discovered that county was seeking to take more property than it needed. While defending against the taking, Tobin secured an early settlement. The county’s initial offer was $40,000,000 and Final Judgment was entered for $62,000,000, plus additional non-monetary concessions worth more than $10,000,000, thereby avoiding the time, costs, and energy inherent in substantial litigation.
