Mineral Rights

Mineral rights can be valuable assets for individuals and businesses alike, particularly in oil-rich Texas. At Ward, Smith & Hill, our attorneys have represented property owners in mineral rights disputes for years. We provide experienced counsel in cases involving:

  • Mineral ownership
  • Deed conveyances
  • Royalty disputes
  • Lease disputes
  • Contract disputes
  • Fractional interests
  • Correlative rights
  • Production payments

The law allows mineral rights to be bought and sold between private individuals, public and privately held businesses, and energy companies. Buyers and sellers of mineral rights must meet certain obligations in order for these transactions to be recognized under the law. The attorneys at Ward, Smith & Hill regularly help clients protect their mineral rights interests against some of the largest energy companies in Texas and elsewhere. We appreciate the sometimes enormous value provided by mineral rights, and we work hard to ensure that our clients’ interests are protected every step of the way.
