Conservation Easement Lawyers

Colorado has become a battleground in the hotly contested conservation easement arena.  The IRS has targeted landowners that donated conservation easements to land trusts in exchange for a federal tax deduction.  The IRS is claiming that the donated conservation easements were overvalued or improperly taken altogether.  Read more...


Class Action Success

The attorneys at Inman Flynn have extensive experience both bringing and defending class actions.  In one instance, we brought a class action against major oil companies for pollution across 69 miles of pipeline in Colorado.  This class action case is now at the Colorado Supreme Court and is set to make significant class action law which will guide class actions in Colorado for years to come.

If you and others have been affected by the wrongdoing of a polluter or in other ways by an irresponsible corporation, please call the attorneys at Inman Flynn.  We also can help if your company or organization is the subject of a class action.
