Oil & Gass Business Litigation
Reasons For Oil & Gas Disputes
In the rush to production, oil companies cut corners, and in doing so, cause unnecessary damage to property. Trespass is the unauthorized use of your property, including engaging in oil and gas activities beyond the terms of the lease or easement. If an oil or gas company has caused damage while trespassing on your property, contact us to discuss your legal options.
Payment. Oil companies routinely pay the wrong people or underpay those who hold production lease rights. Calculating accurate royalty payments can be difficult, and oil companies have wrongfully underpaid stakeholders by padding production costs, or using other illegal means to reduce payment or avoid payment all together. With the development of Eagle Ford Shale, the stakes are substantial.
In many of our cases, our firm serves its clients on a contingency fee basis. The client pays no attorney's fee unless we win or settle your case. We also advance all court costs, litigation expenses, and expert fees. We don't ask to be reimbursed until the end of the case, but only if we obtain a successful settlement or trial verdict.
