what we do / Oil and Gas

in a volatile industry, be nimble to recognize gains and avoid stumbles
overview

Our Oil and Gas team represents clients involved in exploring for, producing, and marketing oil and natural gas as well as others affected by the industry.  Our attorneys have counseled independent producers, service providers, and landowners.  We are experienced in the negotiation and documentation of leases and related documents, drilling and operating agreements, joint venture agreements, pipeline easements, and various other industry-related documents.  The environmental lawyers on our team handle issues involving alleged damages to property and the environment from oil and gas drilling activities, underground storage tanks, ground water contamination, and similar matters.  We have litigated rights between landowners and lessees ranging from lease termination rights to class action royalty litigation.  We have represented clients on oil and gas credit facilities from both the lender side and the borrower side.  Our tax attorneys regularly advise clients on current tax issues in the oil and gas industry.
