Firm Profile

  • Experience. Our partners are primarily senior-level attorneys who come from major law firms and large oil and gas companies.  They have more than an academic understanding of the oil and gas business - they have been landmen, petroleum engineers, and drillers.  Many of our attorneys have worked as in-house counsel with energy companies.  Four of our attorneys are Board Certified in Oil, Gas and Mineral Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
  • Growth. Our growth has mirrored the development of the unconventional shale plays in the United States.  Since 2005, the firm has grown from a two-person operation to over 65 attorneys in four states.
  • Reach. Burleson's portfolio of work includes clients with interests in the Barnett, Bakken, Eagle Ford, Fayetteville, Haynesville, Marcellus, Mississippi Lime, Niobrara, Permian Basin, Utica, and Woodford shale formations.  Our attorneys are licensed in over 20 states. 
  • Value. Our rates are lower than those you would expect to find in a firm of our size and with our level of experience.
