Royalty Disputes

When an oil or gas company and a landowner enter into a lease allowing the company to extract resources from the land, it is expected that the company will pay the full royalties required under the agreement. Unfortunately, many landowners discover that they do not receive the financial benefits to which they are entitled.  Some oil and gas companies use complex accounting schemes to reduce the royalties that they are required to pay, form business entities that skim proceeds from the extraction of oil and gas, or charge excessive fees to landowners.

Landowners who suspect malfeasance on the part of oil and gas companies need the counsel of veteran trial lawyers who have taken on large corporations, like our firm did in State of Alabama v. Exxon Corp.  We helped the State of Alabama recover its unpaid royalties and we can help you too.

Don’t let an oil and gas company that has resorted to dishonest tactics take advantage of you. Cunningham Bounds has the resources and the expertise to enforce any agreement, no matter the size of the company on the other side.
