Lambert M. Laperouse

Member

Lambert Laperouse was born and grew up in New Iberia, Louisiana and at an early age assisted in his father’s abstracting company that served the oil and gas industry.  In such capacity, Lambert was trained to conduct courthouse research in order to develop the chain of title to lands of concern to the industry and to assemble the results of such research into abstracts for examination by oil and gas title attorneys.  Upon obtaining his law degree, Lambert joined a Louisiana based law firm and continued servicing the oil and gas industry, initially in rendering title opinions for exploration, development and/or acquisition purposes with respect to lands situated onshore Louisiana or on the outer continental shelf.  Over time, Lambert’s practice area broadened to include transactional work and associated contractual and regulatory advice.

Representative Cases

Through his representation of the oil and gas industry for a period exceeding 40 years, Lambert has extensive experience in a variety of areas of importance to the industry, including: acquisitions and divestitures; title examinations; assessment of title deficiencies and preparation of title curative documentation; regulatory advice and counseling with respect to issues involving various federal and state agencies, including the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, Office of Natural Resources Revenue and the Department of Natural Resources of the State of Louisiana; contractual and regulatory advice with respect to plugging and abandonment and decommissioning obligations and liabilities, owed to industry partners or governmental agencies; bonding and indemnity agreement advice and counseling regarding financial assurance matters; preparation of and advice with regard to contracts typically in use by the oil and gas industry, including asset purchase agreements, joint operating agreements, production handling agreements, joint venture agreements, participation agreements and farmout agreements; representation of co-working interest owners and legacy owners as claimants in Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 proceedings involving current or former working interest co-owners.

Education

B.S., Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge), 1975
J.D., Loyola University College of Law (New Orleans), 1979

Personal
Lambert is currently the managing member of Gieger, Laborde & Laperouse, L.L.C., with offices in New Orleans and Houston. He has been an oil and gas practitioner since 1979, assisting clients in energy related matters with a primary focus on the Gulf Coast area.

Lambert volunteered as an adjunct law professor from 1979 until 2006 teaching the course, Oil and Gas Law, at Loyola University College of Law. Post-Hurricane Katrina, Lambert’s frequent trips to Houston sufficiently curtailed his schedule and his teaching career ended.

Lambert continues to split his workweek between his firm’s offices in New Orleans and Houston, and he and his wife, Ann, reside in Mandeville, Louisiana, a bedroom community north of New Orleans.

Lambert is a past member of the Board of Directors of the Petroleum Landmen’s Association in New Orleans and has participated and delivered presentations in numerous seminars conducted by that organization, the Houston Association of Petroleum Landmen, the American Association of Professional Landmen, the OCS Committee, and other oil and gas related associations.
