Applying our extensive litigation experience
Oil and gas companies are often accused of not paying royalties to the owners of the land or mineral rights. And because of the dangers of drilling, oil and gas businesses must often deal with property damage resulting from oil well fires or explosions. These accidents can also lead to litigation over injuries caused to workers. Our attorneys have substantial knowledge and experience in disputes over such matters as royalties, mineral titles, operating agreements and commercial transactions involving purchase and sales agreements, and they are accustomed to dealing with problems resulting from industry-related accidents. Regardless of your legal challenges, our attorneys work hard to resolve your claims out of court, but you can also be confident that we are experienced litigators who are prepared for any contested matter or court hearing.

During more than 40 years’ combined legal experience, our attorneys have worked with public, industrial commissions and natural resources and tax agencies to secure all required permits and licenses. When you hire an attorney from the Maxson Law Office, P.C., you get a professional who understands and actively defends against common oil and gas issues, reducing the strain on your business.
