About This Course
Landowners hold a distinct advantage over oil companies and over the years, their leases have begun to reflect that. Oil companies have no choice but to acquiesce to increasingly land-owner friendly leases and while many still resist, form leases are becoming a rarity.
This CLE course, presented by oil and gas attorney Josh Stein, will explain the most common sources of ambiguity and error which may arise in drafting oil and gas leases, even top leases, and how attorneys can protect clients on both sides during the leasing process. The course will explain the interaction between lease clauses, present strategies for drafting leases and reveal how to exploit or correct common drafting mistakes.
