Communication with Opposing Counsel and Landowners (Apr 2020)
Common law rules, the fields of tort and contract, as well as rules of professional ethics, govern a lawyer’s or landman’s negotiations on behalf of a client. By remaining mindful of these rules, including how the rules differ depending on whether you are negotiating with opposing counsel or a landowner, you can stay out of trouble and better serve your client.
