Applying our extensive litigation experience
Oil and gas companies are often accused of not paying royalties to the owners of the land or mineral rights. And because of the dangers of drilling, oil and gas businesses must often deal with property damage, such as oil well fires or explosions. These accidents can lead to litigation over injuries caused to workers.

We have substantial knowledge and experience in disputes over such matters as royalties, mineral titles, operating agreements and commercial transactions involving purchase and sales agreements, and we are accustomed to dealing with problems resulting from industry-related accidents. Regardless of your legal challenges, we work hard to resolve your claims out of court, but you can also be confident that we are experienced litigators who are prepared for any contested matter or court hearing.

Helping clients comply with regulations
We help companies understand their rights and proactively avoid litigation by adhering to regulations. We advise oil and gas companies on contractual matters, and help them understand and comply with New Mexico and federal laws including the General Mining Act of 1872, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. Throughout our 47 years in practice, we have worked with public and industrial commissions and natural resources and tax agencies to secure all required permits and licenses. When you hire us, you get a professional who understands and actively defends against common oil and gas issues, reducing the strain on your business.
