Practice Areas

We represent clients across the state of Montana, whether that be in court or simply drafting a contract or lease. We have represented clients from Ekalaka to Browning, from Wibaux to Dillon and all points in between. Our attorneys are licensed to practice in all judicial districts in Montana, Federal Court for the District of Montana, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

Property Rights

Lund Law focuses on all types of property rights issues. We do everything from drafting agricultural leases to defending property owners from government actions to negotiating with wind or solar energy development companies.

Water Rights

Everything about water law seems complex. In some ways there is no way around the fact that governing a fluid substance like water in a property rights legal framework, is hard. Yet, we have protections for intellectual and other types of similar property.

Litigation/Appeals

Hertha has done appeals to government agencies, the Montana Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court. Based on Hertha’s experience of working in Washington D.C., Montana, Washington state, and across the West on natural resource issues, she brings a valuable perspective.

Eminent Domain

When Hertha attended the United States Supreme Court case of Lucas v. South Carolina as a journalist in 1992 she decided to go to law school to become an advocate for property owners. After law school she clerked for then Chief Judge Loren Smith at the United States Court of Federal Claims where most takings cases against the United States are decided. 

Wind and Solar Energy Agreement

Hertha has worked on many wind lease/easement agreements on behalf of landowners throughout the last sixteen years. She loves to negotiate on behalf of landowners. Her experience provides her with insights and a practical approach that serves her clients.

Road and Ditch Easements

Lund Law has represented numerous landowners in disputes related to easements. They will first try to negotiate a resolution; however, if the landowners can’t reach an accord, the team at Lund Law is ready and willing to litigate.
