Brandee Caswell


Brandee Caswell leads the Property Rights Practice at Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP. The DGS Property Rights Practice specializes in resolving complex, high-value real estate disputes involving land use, eminent domain leases, special districts, and the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (CCIOA).

Ms. Caswell brings decades of experience in complex real estate advocacy and eminent domain to DGS clients. Delivering a unique blend of real estate knowledge and litigation prowess to solve the most challenging property disputes is Ms. Caswell’s specialty.

From the outset of private practice, real estate has been her focus. She understands horizontal and vertical land development over a wide range of property and product types. Ms. Caswell leverages her real estate expertise and acumen as an advocate to resolve complex disputes rather than proliferate them. She formulates creative and common-sense solutions while providing formidable advocacy on behalf of her clients.

A distinguished authority in eminent domain, Ms. Caswell frequently lectures on eminent domain subjects in Colorado and nationally for the American Law Institute. She is well-known for her representation of both landowners and condemning authorities in eminent domain proceedings involving highway expansions, urban renewal, utility projects, and mixed-use/retail development projects.

Ms. Caswell is a seasoned trial lawyer who has litigated in state and federal court in diverse jurisdictions, including Colorado, California, Illinois, Florida, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming.

Prior to joining DGS, Ms. Caswell was a partner in the Denver office of an international law firm where she led a similar practice group across nine offices and guided clients through even the most obscure legal proceedings involving real estate across the U.S.

She earned her J.D. from the University of Kansas School of Law and her B.A. from Colorado State University. During law school, she served on the Law Review. She is admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, and the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.
