Oil, Gas, and Natural Resources Law
At McMahon Surovik Suttle, our attorneys represent oil and gas exploration and production companies as well as mineral, royalty and surface owners in a wide variety of oil, gas, and mineral matters. Our attorneys assist clients in every stage of mineral exploration and production: leasing, title opinions and title curative, investment opportunities, asset-based lending, joint operating agreements and participation agreements, and purchase and sale agreements. In addition, we represent a wide variety of oilfield service providers. For mineral and royalty owners, we focus on maximizing the economics of leasing with balancing the protection and preservation of the surface estate. We also assist clients in obtaining and negotiating pipeline easements. Our oil and gas attorneys team with our litigation attorneys to resolve disputes related to surface uses, leasing matters and all facets of oil and gas litigation. In addition to a traditional oil, gas and mineral law practice, our attorneys have extensive experience in negotiating wind energy leases, water rights transactions and other real property issues.
