Mineral title


Mineral title law is a complex area, requiring a sophisticated understanding of a unique set of regulations and terminology. To maximize your mineral assets, you need attorneys with experience in this highly specialized field who can guide you through the full title examination and analysis process.  Our Energy and Natural Resource team has several attorneys who regularly assist clients with surface and mineral title issues – from identifying property ownership, conducting due diligence and drafting title opinions, including original, supplemental, and division order title opinions, to the negotiation of purchase agreements and structure of post-closing matters required to cure potential title defects.  With attention to detail and a strong focus on your business goals, we can assist sellers and buyers looking to take advantage of their mineral assets.

Our services in this area include:
  • Drafting original, supplemental and division order title opinions
  • Executing deeds, liens, oil and gas leases, mortgages, easements and all related documents to the acquisition of real estate
