Mineral, Oil and Gas

Mineral, Oil and Gas Law

KDDK mineral law attorneys regularly counsel Indiana and Illinois businesses and individuals concerning the ownership, sale and operation of mines, quarries and wells. Our firm represents both land owners and operators in investigating, preserving, leasing, and enforcing the rights to natural resources found in or on properties in the Tri-State region, including timber, oil, natural gas, and coal.

Our mineral law attorneys regularly assist with transfers of leases and operations, investment ventures, mergers and acquisitions, mineral development, supply agreements, environmental assessments, and claim staking. Our experience enables us to provide valuable counsel to our clients with knowledgeable, cost-effective and innovative solutions to a wide-variety of issues involving mineral and natural resource rights, such as determining mineral rights that may be concealed in property titles and which may have changed hands over multiple generations. Our mineral law team also represents our clients’ mineral interests, both in and out of court, when disputes arise.

Regulatory Compliance

Mining and other natural resources development are among the nation’s most heavily regulated industries. KDDK’s mineral law attorneys routinely provide our clients with thoughtful and knowledgeable advice on regulatory compliance and interpretation of laws, and assist clients in understanding and planning for the impact proposed legislation will have on their business. There is no room for error concerning the drafting, interpretation, arbitration and litigation of contractual arrangements regarding mineral and natural resource rights.

With over six decades of experience working with owners and operators in the Tri-State region, the KDDK mineral law team has positioned itself, and our clients, to play a significant role in the coal, oil and natural gas industries as the need for clean, economical energy increases.
