Montana has many areas that are rich in valuable minerals, including gold, silver, copper and coal. For individuals who own mineral rights and are considering leasing them, and companies seeking to extract minerals from the land, a qualified, experienced lawyer can assist in evaluating options for leasing and acquiring land rights.

My firm has represented all sides to mining claims and leases. I bring a thorough understanding of complex mineral rights law that comes from assisting clients in Montana and North Dakota for more than 30 years. I recognize that when important financial interests are involved, my clients need and value security in their transactions, and I work diligently to provide this throughout the negotiation process.

I also provide comprehensive title search and examination services for both patented and unpatented mining claims. I counsel my clients regarding subsequent lease negotiations or, when necessary, litigation to resolve competing claims or other disputes.
