Oil & Gas


The oil & gas industry has many unique factors to consider in legal representation. Our attorneys have experience representing buyers, sellers, lessors, lessees and operators in a wide range of transactions involving onshore and offshore assets, including leases, purchase and sales, operating agreements, consulting agreements, pooling agreements, surface use agreements, financing agreements, receiverships and pipeline right of way agreements.

In addition to these transactional matters, HDBD has been litigating toxic tort and environmental cases for the oil & gas industry for many years. In fact, we have been named a go-to litigation firm by Conoco in recent years. Fracking litigation has become a hot topic in Texas and HDBD attorneys are also involved in the defense of these cases.
