If an oil or gas company is offering you a lease, the Ohio Valley mineral rights lawyers at Sellitti, Nogay & McCune can protect your rights.

Our attorneys have been actively involved in oil and gas leasing activity throughout the Ohio Valley’s tri-state area and have successfully represented numerous landowners throughout Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. As a landowner in the Ohio Valley, you have the right to fair and adequate compensation for allowing an oil or gas company to drill on your property. The mineral rights lawyers at Sellitti, Nogay & McCune can assist you in lease negotiations involving:

  • Bonus payments
  • Damage clauses
  • Royalty payments
  • Transferability of the lease

Corporations seeking to drill in the tri-state area can approach homeowners with contracts that heavily favor the oil or gas company, often allowing them to drain the property’s mineral resources with little to no responsibility for any damages. Our attorneys at Sellitti, Nogay & McCune can assist landowners in making sure that they receive proper royalties and payments by representing them at all stages of the oil and gas leasing process, including negotiating leases, reviewing contracts presented to landowners by companies and drafting custom contracts.
