Mineral Law

We help small companies and mineral owners develop their assets.

For companies, we provide drilling and division order title opinions, acquisition opinions, title curative, joint operating agreements, condemnations, co-tenant partitions and the like.

For mineral owners, we can negotiate lease offers, “cure” title that is held in suspense, and advise families about managing mineral holdings. We strive for efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

We have over 9 years of experiences in all aspects of the oil business, both as legal counsel and as field operator. We have issued title opinions in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska and represented clients before administrative agencies and courts, both state and federal.
