Oil & Gas
Deep Experience with Oil and Gas Projects
More than a century assisting clients with oil and gas-related projects.
Our extensive knowledge of all aspects of hard rock mining, developed over the last 130 years, forms the basis for our knowledge of oil and gas law. Because of our deep experience in examining title to federal, state and private lands, we can assist clients with all aspects of oil and gas title examination and preparation of acquisition, drilling, division order and financing title opinions and status reports on federal and state lands. In addition, we can assist in financing; mergers and acquisitions; joint operations, and preparation of lease and option agreements related to oil and gas interests on federal, state and private lands. The breadth of our natural resource and environmental practice also means that we can assist in environmental permitting and compliance, acquisition of ancillary rights to support oil and gas operations, such as access rights and water rights related to oil and gas development, and electrical power supply and infrastructure. Our attorneys also provide advice on environmental liability, clean-up, and reclamation issues.
Additionally, virtually every practice group in the firm provides ancillary services to our natural resource clients. Our attorneys assist such clients with employment law matters, corporate, tax, and finance law, litigation, real estate and land use matters, and energy and communications law.
