Title examination is the backbone of our oil and gas practice. All of our work is done in the Rocky Mountain region, particularly Colorado, North Dakota, western Nebraska and southern Wyoming. Because of our local focus and familiarity with the area, we can offer faster, more efficient service. We are also a small, local firm with a minimum of overhead. Therefore, we can provide personalized attention from an experienced attorney at rates comparable to what a large firm will charge for a beginning associate.
Independent Exploration Companies
We work with a number of independent exploration companies, particularly those in the start up phase. Matters often include all types of oil and gas contractual agreements (such as JOA's, Participation Agreements, Asset Purchase Agreements, Partnership Agreements, Farmouts, etc.), money raising documents (PPM, etc.) and oil and gas civil litigation. No case is too big or too small, as we have experience with matters ranging from millions of dollars to just a few thousand.
Making the decision to enter an oil and gas lease is making the decision to enter a long term relationship. Once you have leased your land, that lease will be in effect for at least several years, and often for generations. While the two main questions people tend to focus on are "How much is the lease bonus" and "What is the royalty?", there are a number of other factors to consider. Whether you are considering entering a lease, or have already entered a lease and are having issues, it is important to have proper legal representation.
