Company Rights vs. Landowner Rights
When it comes to geothermal resources rights, it is important to ensure that leases and royalty agreements protect your rights and interests. We work closely with landowners and energy companies to ensure that geothermal agreements protect the value of geothermal resources while also protecting the land from the damaging impacts that careless development can cause.
If you have been approached by an energy company about leasing your land for resource extraction, you need an experienced attorney on your side dedicated to ensuring any agreements protect your interests.
At The Law Offices of M. Brian McMahon, we make sure developers are responsible for removing all equipment at the end of the lease term, eliminating the safety and environmental hazards that can endanger human health and permanently depress the value of your property. In addition, it is important to ensure that the development of your resources proceeds in a responsible manner, minimizing any interference with your property’s current and future uses.
