When Not To Take The Money
Attorney and past NARO-Texas President, Wade Caldwell, will discuss what affirmative defenses such as waiver and estoppel may be available to lessees when the royalty owner cashes the monthly royalty check. Mr. Caldwell will discuss what royalty owners can do to minimize their risk and attempt to ensure that by merely cashing their monthly check, the royalty owner is not surrendering their right to pursue viable and existing causes of action against the lessee.
Mr. Wade Caldwell is a mineral owner, oil and gas attorney, and comes from a ranching family in Albany, Texas.
Mr. Caldwell's practice has included a wide range of oil and gas law and commercial litigation with an emphasis on representation of mineral owners, heavy equipment dealers, real estate, construction, DTPA, collection litigation, and other complex commercial disputes.
Mr. Caldwell also has substantial experience in class actions, employment, product liability, antitrust, insurance and bankruptcy litigation. Primary clients have been mineral and landowners, financial institutions, heavy equipment dealers, and policyholders.
