Jack Wilhelm is an Austin, Texas, attorney whose office is located convenient to the Railroad Commission, General Land Office, State Comptroller’s Office, State Capitol, and Austin area courthouses. Jack focuses his practice on oil and gas and state taxes. Jack’s oil and gas clients include Fortune 500 oil and gas companies and privately and publicly held oil and gas independents, as well as sophisticated landowners. Most of the oil and gas practice focuses on real estate (title examination, acquisition and divestiture of oil and gas properties, and negotiations) and assisting clients with matters before the Railroad Commission and the General Land Office.
In addition, Jack maintains a state tax practice that includes tax planning and contesting state tax liability audits, usually in the areas of severance, sales, and franchise taxes.
Of particular note, because of Jack’s strong real estate background, he is particularly helpful in estate planning and will drafting for clients with significant real estate investments, both in Texas and elsewhere.
In addition to his oil and gas and state tax practice, Jack maintains a civil litigation practice, serves as a mediator and arbitrator, and lobbies the Texas legislature. He is an international member in good standing of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (London, UK); and he has lobbied the Texas legislature on issues such as the maintenance of a mineral estate owner’s rights to conduct surface operations.
