• Opportunity: We advised a private oil and gas company that needed to sell separate parcels of its substantial oil shale holdings. The goal was to sell the real estate assets, including mineral rights and leasing interests, to the highest bidder in a series of time-sensitive transactions.
  • Solution: With in-depth understanding of the combined real estate and energy issues, our lawyers negotiated and drafted all the necessary mineral rights, lease and royalty documents to minimize risks and tax consequences in the allocation of revenues and expenses. We addressed all related title and financing issues and structured the distribution of the proceeds.
  • Result: In little more than a year, our firm handled all the details in selling more than $200 million of leasing and mineral interests to brand-name energy companies in three separate transactions.
