(Washington, D.C.) – A crucial aspect of almost all projects performed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers involves real estate acquisition, management, disposal and appraisal.  These involve complex legal and policy issues that are crucial to keeping projects on schedule.

That’s why Dawson & Associates is delighted to welcome Elizabeth Fagot, Esq. as a Senior Advisor.  During her 30-year career as an attorney with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Liz supported real estate mission elements worldwide.  She served in various positions in the Directorate of Real Estate, including:

  1. Chief, Civil Works Branch;

  2. Chief, Land Acquisition Division; and

  3. Deputy Director of Real Estate.

In 2004, she became the first Assistant Chief Counsel for Real Estate and served through 2011.

Liz’ expertise includes fee and easement acquisitions, title matters, eminent domain, leasing, use and disposal of land at water resources development projects and on military installations, Base Realignment and Closure, Department of Defense real estate programs and work on behalf of other federal agencies.

Liz also helped develop the Army’s policy framework for land contributions on cost shared water resources development projects.  She was instrumental in helping the Army dispose of over 200,000 acres of land under all rounds of Base Realignment and Closure.

Liz is most proud of her work providing “reach back” support to deployed service members and civilians on real estate issues during contingency operations and natural disasters, including U.S. military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Bosnia and on Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts.

Liz is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and has a JD from Georgetown University.  She is also a member of the Virginia and DC Bar Associations.
