Burleson now occupies the fourth floor of the building at 223 West Wall St.  The firm's attorneys in Midland focus almost exclusively on all aspects of oil and gas law, including litigation, condemnations, title examinations, acquisitions, divestitures, environmental issues, water issues, and ad valorem taxation disputes.

The Midland location, which opened at the end of last year, is the fourth office Burleson has established outside of Houston since 2009.  The firm also has offices in Pittsburgh, San Antonio, and Denver, and collectively employs more than 135 attorneys who represent clients on a full range of oil and gas matters in every major North American producing region.

Managing Partner Rick Burleson said the firm is well positioned to support the companies who are fueling the increased activity in the Basin and other major plays.

"The Permian Basin has been a consistent, reliable source of energy for decades, and continues to be front and center in America's focus on domestic production," explained Burleson.  "We have many friends in the Midland-Odessa area, and are excited to renew some old friendships, establish some new ones, and become a boots-on-the-ground resource for operators in the Basin. I think folks here appreciate the broad scope of sophisticated legal services the firm offers and that we are delivering these services right here on Wall Street."

Pat Long Weaver, who joined Burleson as a partner this year, is a veteran Midland litigator who has represented a spectrum of oil and gas clients in the Permian Basin, from individuals to start-up enterprises to Fortune 500 companies.  She said, "This is a key time for the industry and the region, and companies want an energy law firm that's committed to providing highly efficient and highly effective legal counsel.  Burleson is bringing that to the table, and our new office underscores our dedication to the Basin."
