Oil and gas law is one type of natural resources law — one that is associated specifically with the exploration, transportation and production of natural gas and crude oil. Oil and gas law, or energy law, intersects with many other areas of the law, including employment law, environmental law, contract law, property law and tort law. Patterson PC has extensive experience in all legal matters related to oil and gas litigation.

Can An Oil And Gas Attorney Help A Landowner Determine Monetary Damages?

Yes. It is important to note, however, that damages should never be assumed in a pending legal matter. First and foremost, we will focus on helping you determine and protect your rights. While laws governing oil and gas-related property rights do vary by state, there is one caveat, which is held as virtually universal: “An owner of real estate also owns the minerals underneath the surface, unless the minerals are severed under a preceding deed or an agreement.”

Oil and gas litigation is a complex area of law, requiring the counsel and representation of an experienced attorney with proven success representing landowners in property issues or other energy-related legal matters. To fully understand your rights and receive a thorough evaluation of your specific case, we encourage you to contact Patterson PC today.
