Coal, oil and gas, and mineral rights
Many of our clients face issues surrounding mineral rights, oil and gas interests, and aggregates. We have developed a deep understanding of these issues and are able to develop creative solutions with our clients. We provide legal opinions on mineral titles and assist clients in obtaining permits for mineral extraction. Our attorneys counsel clients on state and federal environmental and permitting requirements relating to all forms of mineral development. We also represent clients before local authorities when obtaining zoning changes or conditional use permits. When controversies arise with surface owners, other mineral owners, or government bodies, our experienced litigators protect client interests in the courtroom. We are also able to serve clients in the area of regulatory takings.
