Representing Landowners

If you are a residential or commercial property owner who has been approached by a company interested in the rights to oil or gas on your land, we encourage you to discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer. Whether you own industrial property, hunting land, a golf course, real estate you purchased for development purposes, or any other land, it is important that you proceed with care. While the initial money to be made when signing an oil and gas lease may seem lucrative, other factors should be taken into consideration. We will work with you to see that your business arrangement is a successful one, and one that reflects your short- and long-term interests. We will work to ensure that your land is treated properly and profitably.
