Oil And Gas Transactions

At Stephenson Fournier in Houston, our oil and gas lawyers represent closely held oil and gas companies, investors, working interest owners, royalty owners, farm and ranch owners, and other stakeholders in oil and gas transactions and contracts.

We prepare, review and negotiate oil and gas contracts and agreements of all kinds, and we represent clients in significant acquisitions and sales of producing properties, as well as related financing and loan transactions. Oil and gas transactions often involve purchase and sale agreements, oil and gas exploration agreements, operating agreements, and related loan documents, all of which we handle.

Safeguarding Your Interests Every Step Of The Way

Our founder and partner Jim Stephenson has extensive experience representing clients who develop oil and gas projects and explore for oil and gas. His practice overlaps with many areas of law that affect our oil and gas clients such as real estate law, tax law and environmental concerns, giving him a depth and breadth of knowledge that is critical in many cases.

Our partner Juli Fournier has also represented oil and gas developers, working interest owners and oil and gas investors since 1986. In addition to handling significant purchases and sales of producing properties, she assists our oil and gas clients with corporate, LLC and partnership transactions, and with matters such as negotiating contracts and drafting agreements relating to oil and gas investments.

We bring a wealth of legal knowledge and resources to each transaction we handle, focusing on delivery of high-quality legal advice with regard for our clients' business and economic interests. To discuss your legal needs, contact our oil and gas lawyers online or call 713-629-9494.
