Profile

Kandice is Chair of the Litigation Group and leads the Eminent Domain Practice.

She focuses her practice on the representation of clients in complex commercial litigation in business disputes.

She has particular experience in real property litigation. Kandice handles both federal and state claims, and has represented clients in cases involving breach of contract claims, quiet title actions, and land use disputes, among others.

Kandice regularly counsels both condemnors and condemnees in eminent domain matters. She has experience defending private property owners in both federal and state condemnation actions.  She has successfully secured the constitutional guarantee of payment of just compensation for the taking of the property and damages to the remainder property caused by condemnation.  Kandice has additionally assisted clients in asserting inverse condemnation claims where the condemning authority’s activities resulted in a taking of private property without formal condemnation proceedings.  On the other side of such matters, Kandice has experience asserting the rights of public entities under the Eminent Domain Code and the Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law, including, among others, the right of public utilities related to Marcellus Shale infrastructure projects.

Kandice has particular experience in the appellate courts, representing individuals, businesses and trade organizations in matters before the Pennsylvania Supreme, Superior, and Commonwealth Courts and consulting on matters proceeding to appellate litigation. Kandice previously served as a law clerk to the Honorable Thomas G. Saylor, now the Chief Justice of Pennsylvania.

Kandice is active in ALFA International, the global legal network of which McNees is a member. She handles the firm’s involvement with the organization and can connect McNees’ clients to attorneys around the world.
