Dear fellow attorneys, landmen, and oil and gas professionals,

One of the most enjoyable parts of my job is tracking the frontier of oil and gas law. In addition to my everyday practice, this involves reading important decided cases and influential articles from across the nation. I’ve developed a bit of a system for how to do this, and I’ve seen how my growing knowledge base has benefited my practice and the results I can achieve for my clients.

The goal of this blog is share at least some of this knowledge with you all. The coming posts will, for example, provide summaries of important new oil and gas cases (and maybe revisit some classic ones), identify emerging trends in oil and gas litigation, provide an overview of recent articles, and so forth. I hope you will find it useful and interesting.

Stay tuned, and until next time, keep operating prudently.
