Solving Oil, Gas And Other Energy Producer Issues
Stull, Beverlin, Nicolay & Haas, LLC., represents individuals and businesses on the production side of the Kansas oil and gas industry — including exploration companies, energy producers and interest owners — in legal matters pertaining to transactions and litigation. Our lawyers have decades of experience in Kansas natural resources law, and we can represent our clients effectively in the entire spectrum of legal issues relating to the exploration and production of petroleum and natural gas.
Our founding attorney, Gordon B. Stull, has represented production side clients in Kansas legal matters since the mid-1970s. He is recognized across the region for his broad knowledge and experience with oil and gas leases, agreements, title opinions and related litigation. He routinely represents clients throughout the United States and internationally.
Over the years, Mr. Stull and our other attorneys at Stull, Beverlin, Nicolay & Haas, LLC., have built a strong portfolio of clients, including major oil and gas companies, as well as Kansas-based drilling and well service companies. We also provide legal counsel to industry organizations.

We Can Be Your ‘Landman’
We often say that we provide comprehensive landman services to exploration companies and producers. We say this because, as experienced Kansas oil and gas attorneys, we can perform many of the services that independent landmen usually perform, including title searches, deed searches and other research; obtaining abstracts and land reports; acquiring leases and rights of way; negotiating royalties and other lease terms; clarifying liens and other encumbrances, and otherwise advising and representing clients in this specialized field.
As experienced attorneys, however, we can also ensure these tasks are handled thoroughly and with legal accuracy. This can protect you against investing in or developing wells with uncommitted interest. This step also helps to prevent future lawsuits that can arise from careless or missing title work.
Title And Well Bore Opinions
Oil and natural gas fields are rarely limited to a single owner or a single entity with legal interest. Instead, there are often many, even hundreds of, parties who may have a stake in a single resource. As a result, any party that is purchasing, leasing or selling oil and gas property should obtain a title opinion to clarify and preserve its legal rights.
If you or your business is drilling a well, a drilling title opinion and/or well bore title opinion is essential. Retain Stull, Beverlin, Nicolay & Haas, LLC., and we can produce a full title opinion or a limited opinion to address your particular issues.
