Natural resources, energy and land use law is an exacting area of law. At The

Hayes Law Firm, we do that and only that. If you have questions or problems about the acquisition or ownership rights in gas, oil or mining, compliance with state and federal regulations, or getting approvals for your land use plans, it is important to work with a lawyer who can help you understand the law.

- Operating agreements

- Royalty disputes

- Surface use agreements

- Asset purchase and sales

- Mineral and oil and gas Leasing

- Dispute workouts

- Permit issues

- Regulatory matters

- Land use agreements
