Kuiper routinely acts as outside counsel for private equity oil and gas companies as well as fortune 500 companies. Throughout his career, Kuiper has assisted hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth in corporate acquisitions, authored countless oil and gas title opinions, and participated in civil disputes and litigation for both young professionals and large corporations.
With his Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science from The University of Texas, Kuiper pursued his legal education at South Texas College of Law, where he earned his (J.D.). He then began working for large private practices centered around Oil & Gas law.
