Services for Landowners

Effective guidance for property-owners

If you own land in Pennsylvania, Ohio, or West Virginia, SMGG can help with:

  • Leases and Contracts (Review & Negotiation)
  • Title Analysis (Deed & Lease Review)
  • Royalty Analysis
  • Estate Planning
  • Lease Disputes
  • Royalty Disputes
  • Property Ownership (Quiet Title Actions and Declaratory Judgment Actions)
  • Property Damage & Trespass
  • Personal Injury Matters

If you are considering entering into an Oil and Gas lease, the attorneys at Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Gefsky will explain your options as a property owner. We can give you advice on a proposed lease or we can negotiate with the Oil and Gas companies on your behalf. Either way, our goal is to talk through any concerns you may have and to help you make decisions.

After you have signed a lease, it is important to protect your rights. Landowners are often asked to sign documents months or even years after entering a lease. Each one of these documents could potentially affect the rights for which you negotiated during the leasing process. The attorneys at SMGG can review any post-lease documents that you have been asked to sign. We can advise you on the potential effects those documents may have on your rights as a royalty owner.
