Board Certified in Oil, Gas Mineral Law
Mr. Gill believes in and practices creative problem-solving. In his thirty-two years of practicing oil and gas law, he’s encountered most of the problems faced by exploration and production companies and professionals. Sometimes it’s a difficult negotiation, and a kinder, gentler approach to get the parties to the win-win solution they desire is called for. Sometime it’s a particularly complex contractual undertaking, where attention to detail and experience with the kinds of instruments (leases, farmouts, operating agreements, production acquisitions, sales or loans) is must-have. Often, increasingly fractionated titles and obscure title issues can jeopardize the massive investments needed to get today’s monster wells drilled – and expose the venture to title failure. Too frequently, the collaborative approach fails, positions harden, and the vast sums of money involved seem to make it impossible to find a solution outside the courthouse. At those times, Lee’s experience, judgment and people skills bring you the advantages you need to protect and defend your rights.
He has successfully represented plaintiffs and defendants in disputes involving Breach of Contract, Boundaries, Trespass, Conversion, Area of Mutual Interest Clauses, Pooling, Title Matters, Gas Contracts, Operating Agreements, Exploration Agreements, Lien Priority, Enforcement of Security Agreements, Deeds of Trust, Real Estate, and other issues, including several first-chair jury trials.
