A Focus on Oil and Gas Law

The Firm provides efficient and cost-sensitive business and litigation skills across a variety of commercial matters and most particularly for oil and gas transactions, and general business affairs.

The Firm’s attorneys have substantial knowledge of gas-processing operations and marketing arrangements; the interdependency of gas plants and mature oil reservoirs; cradle-to-grave marketing of gas well gas, casinghead gas and crude oil; and enhanced oil recovery.

Accounting for joint interest, royalty and severance/production taxation on upstream production, the firm also works on land management, easements and mineral-leasing negotiations.

More than Two Decades Of Exceptional Representation for the Oil and Gas, and Business Community in Texas.

Holmes Pushes for Supersedeas Reforms in Texas Law

James Holmes pushes to reform Texas’s “supersedeas laws” — the rules for how a business prevents judgment execution while pursuing an appeal.

Collaborative Approach to Business Transactions

The Firm’s business clients have developed a transactional practice involving entity formation, trust administration, deeds and conveyancing, bank and equity financing, mineral lease negotiation, contract drafting and negotiation, and regulatory compliance.

The transactional practice attends to the Firm’s long-standing client base as well as to entrepreneurial and incipient businesses. Further, the Firm’s transactional practice can provide alternative solutions to wasteful or uneconomical litigation – which the Firm especially strives to avoid.

The Firm works with its clients’ in-house attorneys or lawyers and staff to meet the clients’ transactional needs. Also, the Firm associates with transactional law boutiques when and as necessary, depending upon the size and complexity of the transactional need.
