Bode & Werner, PLLC, has developed its multistate practice to meet the legal needs of the oil and gas industry. Our Firm is actively involved in rendering Title Opinions covering properties throughout Texas, Colorado, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, and we have the experience needed to provide the oil and gas industry with quality legal counsel for its operations and asset management.
Our extensive experience representing clients in the oil and gas exploration business runs the gamut from conducting title examination, rendering opinions, conducting due diligence in the acquisition of producing properties and counseling clients on transactional matters.
Our extensive background and culture reflects experience drawn from all facets of the industry. A number of the Firm’s attorneys have served in both land and legal departments of large independent producers and have extensive experience in leasehold acquisition, transactional matters related to the operation of producing properties, and in the acquisition and divestiture of producing properties and pipeline systems. Many of the Firm’s attorneys have a land background, having worked in the field as landmen running records, constructing runsheets and acquiring leases.
As a result of the depth of our background, we are able to work more closely with in-house and field landmen to prepare a thorough and accurate Opinion within the parameters of the client’s needs. We do not believe in the “Ivory Tower” approach in dealing with title issues. We strive to write our Opinions in a manner such that the in-house and field landmen can pick up our Opinions, understand the issues and obtain practical advice on curative requirements. We truly enjoy what we are doing, and this is reflected in our work and interactions with clients. We believe we have created an environment where our clients will want to work with us.
Our Firm is small enough to give the client the effectiveness of a one-on-one relationship, and at the same time, we are large enough that we can quickly allocate our resources to meet the deadlines that are all-too-common in this industry.
We are dedicated to our client’s goals and focused on finding a highly cost-effective and efficient solution to meet their needs.
Please give us a call. We look forward to working with you!
