They are a law firm out of Columbus Ohio that represent royalty owners and say they can recover underpayments from the O&G Companies (for a percentage).

Here is a link to his website>  Personally I always question why an attorney suspects there have been underpayments, I would think you are more aware of any shortages than the attorney.

Good Luck

Thanks for the response WV Mineral Owner. I don't think they suspect underpayments for any specific unit/royalty owner. They are making a business out of auditing and taking a percentage of any underpayments they recover. Given the arbitration clauses in many leases, this may not be a bad approach for a royalty owner.

Many of the companies play games with deductions and adjustments. We regularly see CHK making adjustments going back 2-3 YEARS on our monthly checks. Invariably those adjustments seem to be deductions not in the royalty owners favor.

Anyways, this firm had an informational meeting last night in Carrollton, OH - I wasn't able to make it.
