We are pleased to report that Mark Nastri has been retained as lead attorney for the North Hills Mineral Owners Coalition. Mark is a shareholder partner in the Dallas law offices of Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, P.C. He has spent over 27 years in and around the oil and gas business, including 7 years as a petroleum landman with a large Dallas-based independent oil and gas company, then 18 years as an attorney handling oil and gas transactions and litigation. He practices in state and federal courts throughout Texas in general commercial litigation, oil and gas, contract and warranty litigation, real estate and construction disputes and products liability. His experience as both an attorney and a former petroleum landman gives Mark a unique base of insight into all aspects of oil and gas law.
Mark has negotiated 1000’s of oil and gas leases in the Barnett Shale gas play. He has represented hundreds of individual property owners and subdivisions in various cities throughout Tarrant County, and dozens of commercial property owners, apartment complexes, shopping centers, and industrial properties.
“My landowner clients view my insight into the oil company side of the equation as invaluable in lease negotiations. Likewise, the oil and gas companies appreciate the value of my knowledge of the whole equation. They know that I will not put forth something that is unachievable.”
Mark earned a BA in Petroleum Land Management at The University of Texas at Austin, then a law degree at the SMU Dedman School of Law. He’s a active member of the Energy Law section of the Dallas Bar Association, and the Oil, Gas and Mineral Law sections of the State Bar of Texas.
