BIOGRAPHY

Jared Burden’s practice encompasses both litigation and regulatory compliance, with particular emphasis on matters involving leases, rights of way, and easements, as well as general commercial litigation. His clients include oil and gas producers, midstream energy companies, manufacturers, transportation and logistics companies, healthcare providers, and companies in various other industries.

Jared has hands-on experience assisting clients in all phases of litigation. Although his litigation practice primarily focuses on complex commercial litigation and oil and gas disputes, he also has experience defending manufacturers in product liability suits.

As part of his regulatory practice, Jared has advised clients on diverse matters, including records management, health and safety, emergency management response, operational compliance, zoning and civil investigations. In addition, he has provided guidance on compliance issues under both federal and state regulations for pipelines, oil and gas producers, healthcare companies, and other clients.

Jared’s achievements have earned him inclusion in Super Lawyers’ list of “Oklahoma Rising Stars,” which recognizes the state’s top up-and-coming attorneys.

Prior to entering law school, he worked as a volunteer coordinator and lab assistant at the Lubbock Lake Landmark, an extension of the Museum of Texas Tech University.
