Oil & Gas Law

Bradley Law Firm provides its oil and gas clients with attorneys who possess extensive experience in oil and gas legal matters. With attorneys licensed in Texas and Pennsylvania, the firm represents oil and gas companies in all facets of the industry. Our attorneys represent clients in oil and gas title examination, transactions, and litigation.

Title Examination for Oil and Gas Companies

Bradley Law Firm has a primary focus in providing its clients with comprehensive title examination for acquisition, drilling, division order and financing transaction title opinions. Each of our title attorneys has extensive experience in examining oil and gas title documents. Additionally, each of the firm's title attorneys has experience in conducting stand-up examination as well as sit-down examination. This allows our attorneys to work seamlessly with the landmen when preparing a title opinion.

Our attorneys have experience in preparing title opinions in shale plays, rural areas, and urban areas involving small, fractionalized interests. We examine the public real property records to identify the current ownership of surface rights, mineral rights, and leasehold rights. Additionally, our attorneys have experience in identifying encumbrances which affect the operation, development, acquisition or financing of the project.

Oil and Gas Transactions

Bradley Law Firm represents oil and gas clients in a wide range of transactions including purchase and sale of producing properties, operating agreements, leases, and service agreements. Our firm handles both small and large transactions with the same attention to detail. Our attorneys assist clients in the preparation of terms sheets and letters of intent, as well as providing services throughout the due diligence process. We have extensive experience in negotiating purchase and sale agreements, escrow agent agreements, transition agreements, and transfer documents.

The firm also represents operators and non-operators in the preparation and interpretation of operating agreements. In addition, our attorneys provide our clients with assistance in numerous other types of oil and gas transactions, including: negotiating and drafting farmout agreements, exploration contracts, production contracts, ingress/egress arrangements, surface use contracts; entity creation and dissolution; and compliance with governmental regulations and restrictions.

Oil and Gas Litigation

Bradley Law Firm has provided its clients with quality representation in court and before administrative bodies in a variety of oil and gas issues. Our attorneys represent operators, non-operators, mineral owners, lien holders, and service providers in a wide array of legal issues and disputes, including COPAS accounting, royalty disputes, ingress disputes, surface damage issues, seismic rights, mineral lien disputes, eminent domain, operator development issues, and trespass/spacing claims.

We have experience before all State courts, Federal courts and the Texas Railroad Commission. Our attorneys understand the extensive preparation required to thoroughly protect our clients' rights before tribunals and commissions. Litigation is generally a remedy of last resort which brings with it heightened tension and consequences.
