Charest Appointed to Texas State Bar Oil and Gas Committee

The firm’s Daniel Charest has accepted a three-year appointment to the State Bar of Texas committee responsible for producing an updated guide for attorneys and judges in drafting questions, instructions, and definitions for jury charges involving oil and gas litigation. The Pattern Jury Charges – Oil & Gas Committee provides guidance in cases arising from all forms of oil and gas litigation, including issues involving adverse possession, improper use of real property, issues between lessor and lessee, executive rights, and other judicial considerations. “I’m honored that the State Bar of Texas has invited my input in this area of my practice,” said Charest. According to the State Bar, many practitioners find the committee’s work to be helpful in preparing findings of fact and conclusions of law in nonjury cases and in identifying issues and evidence requirements in oil and gas cases.
