Managing Your Royalty and Mineral Interests

Regardless of whether you own an interest in 1 or 100 wells, you’re a party to a monthly transaction involving money. As such it's simply prudent to stay on top of things. Depositing the revenue, accounting for it, and paying taxes on the royalty income are all part of the deal. At times there comes a point when the hassle factor simply outweighs the benefit of owning the oil or gas royalty. Let us help.

Whether you need help with succession planning, estate cleanup or with the complexity's of Oil and Gas Royalties, our experts can help.
