Lease negotiation: We will negotiate a lease on behalf of landowners interested in protecting their rights and interests in a contract with a wind energy company. Typically, we work with clients after a wind energy company has contacted them for land use purposes. Our duty is to ensure that each client’s contractual rights reflect their monetary interests, the amount they receive for damages and occupation of the land, royalties tied to the land for energy produced, and to ensure protections against abuse of the land.

In drafting and negotiating the terms of your agreement, our firm will consider:

  • Monetary interest paid for damages and occupation of land and royalties tied to the amount of energy produced
  • Protections against the use of your land specifying the terms for clean up and maintenance
  • Duration of the lease to ensure accuracy and protect you and your heirs against encumbrances upon the land and to appropriately address the costs of inflation
