About Oliva Gibbs LLP

Oliva Gibbs serves oil and gas companies across the country. From our offices in Houston, Columbus and Oklahoma City, we advise a wide range of clients—from Fortune 500, integrated oil and gas companies to private equity backed startups and mineral rights companies. Our attorneys are licensed in 10 states, including Louisiana, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

The firm’s strength comes from a deeply held belief in providing exceptional legal services to our clients. Founded in 2013, our firm is anchored by skilled title opinion attorneys, former landmen and team members who are board certified in Oil, Gas and Mineral Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Clients regularly call on us to assist with large and complex title projects, as well as title due diligence for acquisitions and divestitures with short time frames. In addition to rendering title opinions, our firm advises on oil, gas and mineral litigation, contract review and negotiation, business formation and service contracts.

We believe that lifelong learning can improve business outcomes, and we take pride in sharing our knowledge with clients and other industry participants. Our team is regularly asked to present on oil, gas and mineral law topics for multiple organizations, including the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL), the Houston Association of Professional Landmen, the North Houston Association of Professional Landmen, the West Houston Association of Professional Landmen, the Oklahoma City Association of Professional Landmen, the Michael Late Benedum Chapter of the AAPL, the Landman’s Association of North Dakota, the Ark-La-Tex Association of Professional Landmen and the Permian Basin Association of Professional Landmen, among others.
