If you’re looking for an oil and gas lawyer, then it’s likely that you have been contacted by an energy company interested in the mineral rights to your land and you may be feeling unsure regarding how to proceed. That’s natural. All property owners think about the value of their land, but they rarely have any frame of reference regarding the potential value of natural resources that might be below its surface. An oil and gas attorney at the Russell Law Firm understands the potential value of what’s underneath a property of any size. Our job is to help our clients obtain the fair royalties and bonuses they deserve – not the low amounts energy firms prefer to pay.
We Are on Your Side
Whether the land involved is an individual home, a farm, a large business or an industrial property, the only way for owners to be sure they are getting the true market value for their mineral rights is to retain an attorney who specializes in oil and gas law. The fact of the matter is that the large oil companies know their field extremely well. When they approach a landowner, they already have a very good idea of what a property’s natural resources will be worth to them as well as both a low end and high end of what they’re willing to pay for it. Our legal team’s job is to research your property so we also know it’s value, and then do whatever is necessary to ensure that you sell your rights for the right amount of money in royalties and bonuses.
The head of our gas and oil team, Brett Bajon, grew up with a father in the oil and gas business and he became what is called a landman in that field. Researching lands to determine their value was an important part of his job, but the even more important part came when it was time to negotiate with landowners. After years of working on behalf of oil companies, Brett decided to go to law school and put his inside knowledge of the oil industry to work on behalf of landowners. At the Russell Law Firm, we understand both sides of the oil and gas fence, so we are able to make a fair determination of value and ensure that our clients receive every penny their land warrants.
