Mineral Law

Mineral law is a significant and long-standing practice of our firm in which we provide counsel regarding all aspects of the coal, oil and gas industry; including ownership, correlative rights, exploration and development, regulatory law, acquisitions and dispositions and other matters related to mineral law.  Our clients include owners, operators, producers and contractors from national corporations to locally owned small businesses. Services include contract and lease preparation, title examinations, title opinions, civil litigation, purchase and sale transactions, due diligence and financing arrangements. When necessary, we represent our clients in administrative litigation before the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and in matters before the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.  We also represent companies with matters related to other minerals such as fluorspar and rare minerals, as well as non-mineral substances such as gravel, limestone and dirt.
