Energy & Natural Resources

Indian and Public Lands

Fox attorneys represent clients in a range of regulatory, partnership, energy, natural resources and environmental issues as they correspond to the oil and gas industry and the use of Indian and public lands.

We assist clients in issues related to energy transactions on tribal and public lands, including negotiations of mineral and land leases, operating agreements, joint venture agreements, rights-of-way, employment matters and compliance with the Indian Mineral Development Act.

We also provide advice regarding the operation of oil and gas facilities on or near Indian and public lands as well as represent clients before the Bureau of Indian Affairs. We are fluent in the challenges that arise in connection with tribal jurisdiction and environmental compliance and remediation.

In a corporate context, we represent clients in commercial and lending transactions and related areas of federal, state and tribal regulation.
