Extensive Experience in Oil and Gas, Corporate Transactions, Business Litigation and Environmental Law

Ossentjuk & Botti is a results-focused boutique law firm representing a wide variety of clients in several well-defined practice areas, including oil and gas transactions, regulatory matters and litigation, corporate transactions and general business counseling, business litigation, and environmental law. Drawing upon more than 40 years’ combined experience in complex, high-stakes deals and disputes, we are able to serve sophisticated business clients in a hands-on, personally engaged manner not often found in larger institutional law firms. From publicly traded multinationals to brand new start-ups, clients regularly seek our advice and counsel throughout California and across the nation. These clients include oil and gas producers and operators, landowners, industrial manufacturing and distribution companies, investors, real estate developers, and business owners, partners, directors, shareholders and entrepreneurs.

Our experience and expertise include:

  • Oil and gas law — Including oil and gas leases, joint operating agreements, assignments and conveyances, farm-in and farm-out agreements, all types of oil and gas litigation, and all relevant federal, state and local permitting, entitlement, and environmental regulatory requirements.
  • Corporate law — Including business formation, structure and governance, mergers and acquisitions, financings, contracts, joint ventures, ownership and control disputes, and business dissolutions.
  • Business litigation — Including the litigation, trial and arbitration of disputes involving breaches of contract, fraud, unfair competition, business interference, breaches of fiduciary duty, trespass, nuisance, and other business torts.
  • Environmental law — Including regulatory permitting and compliance, defense of regulatory enforcement actions, and indemnity and insurance matters.

We have grounded our law practice in smart, cost-effective representation, superior service and in-depth knowledge of the legal and business issues regularly confronting our clients, who have come to expect that we will quickly learn and understand their business goals and strategies, and will constantly keep our eyes open for sound business-based solutions to their legal issues and disputes.
