About me

Beau Beard focuses his practice on corporate and
oil & gas law. In his corporate practice, Beau regularly handles
day-to-day transaction work, buys and sells businesses or their assets,
and works directly with family-owned and closely held businesses in
dealing with challenging business issues such as redemptions, buy/sell
arrangements, shareholder and shadow equity agreements, transitions and
other issues unique to such businesses.


As part of his oil & gas practice, Beau (i)
buys and sells oil & gas interests in wells, leases and related
assets, (ii) negotiates and drafts Joint Operating Agreements,
Exploration Agreements as well as contracts for drilling, well service
and lease acquisition, and (iii) negotiates and drafts pipeline
management and ownership agreements. Beau's corporate experience
carries over to the firm's bankruptcy and insolvency group where he
represents both creditors and debtors in out-of-court workouts.
