At James R. Rodgers, I help businesses involved in exploring, discovering, acquiring, developing, producing and marketing Oklahoma’s oil and gas resources. I handle disputes that arise during all phases of oil and gas exploration, development and production. I am highly proficient in the complex business issues associated with natural resources law, and have represented clients in a variety of related matters, including:
I have the experience to handle oil and gas-related transactions of any size.
I have extensive experience in disputes over such matters as royalties, mineral titles, operating agreements, and commercial transactions involving purchase and sales agreements, as I am accustomed to dealing with problems resulting from industry-related accidents.
I help companies understand their rights and proactively avoid litigation by adhering to regulations. I advise oil and gas companies on contractual matters, and help them understand and comply with Oklahoma and federal laws including the General Mining Act of 1872, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. I have worked with the public, industrial commissions and natural resources and tax agencies to secure all required permits and licenses. When you hire me, you get a professional who understands and actively defends against common oil and gas issues, reducing the strain on your business.
