Energy & Natural Resources

Our Expertise

Our Energy and Natural Resources lawyers offer expertise in both the oil and gas, and mining sectors. We have developed a niche for taking mining and oil and gas startups to the capital markets. We have also worked extensively with oil and gas services, including drilling, well stimulation and environmental companies.

Our lawyers have integrated experience in exploration and development for both mining and oil and gas companies ranging from financing to mergers and acquisitions of resource properties and companies to detailed contract review and preparation. In addition to acting as counsel to natural resource companies, we also provide advice to individual mineral and surface rights owners.

The Energy and Natural Resources lawyers at McLeod Law provide advice and transactional services on a variety of matters, including:

  • Mining transactions, option agreements, joint ventures agreements
  • Oil and gas transactions, agreements and title opinions
  • Oil and gas service industry agreements and transactions
  • Freehold lease review
  • Project development
  • First Nations agreements

In conjunction with our Litigation & Dispute Resolution Group, we also offer our clients representation at regulatory hearings and the Alberta Surface Rights Board.

Through our affiliation with the TAGLaw global network, we can connect our clients to qualified and respected law firms outside of Alberta, for legal needs in any other province, state or country.
