Cecily Salley began her legal career at a major oil corporation involved in exploring, discovering, acquiring, developing, producing and marketing Louisiana’s oil and gas resources. She handled work pertaining to all phases of oil and gas exploration, development and production, including operating issues, farm-outs, federal and state leases, federal and state regulatory matters, unitization, royalty issues, equipment purchases and similar matters.
She then joined a major New Orleans law firm that represented an extensive list of exploration and production, pipeline and other industry clients as well as many landowning entities and families. Ultimately, she became a member of a New Orleans firm that served primarily landowner companies and individuals where she found her years of experience representing industry clients an invaluable source of knowledge and experience for understanding their oil and gas issues. Since forming the Salley Law Firm, Cecily Salley has assisted mineral owners who own some of the largest tracts in Louisiana as well as owners who share their minerals with hundreds of relatives.
The most common need of mineral owners is to enter a fair and favorable oil and gas lease.. Mineral owners may also be asked to sign seismic agreements, subsurface servitudes, pipeline or road servitudes or many other documents that allow operations on or under the surface of their property. Cecily Salley can assist you in negotiating all of these.
