Mining and Mineral Rights



We advise our mining clients and litigate on issues about severed mineral rights, mineral royalties, and associated rights. We also represent manufacturers and users of mining equipment in product liability cases involving excavators, bulldozers, drills, lifts, shovels, and cranes.


In 2010, on behalf of a coal company client, we received the affirmation of the Missouri Court of Appeals of our summary judgment win, reconfirming that a grantor of royalty rights can only burden the estate that he owns.
