CRAWFORD, WISHNEW & LANG represents clients in matters involving mineral interests, as well as other energy-related businesses and interests. Often, these cases touch multiple areas of the law, as they involve contractual and business considerations in addition to considerations regarding real property and title. We make it a priority to stay informed of the constant legal and technological developments in the energy industry, both statewide and around the country, which makes us more effective advisors and litigators for our mineral interest-holding clients.
