For the past two decades, Alex Goiran has spe­cial­ized in real estate law, rep­re­sent­ing devel­op­ers, investors and landown­ers, and since this is Col­orado, where nat­ur­al resources are so impor­tant, he has focused on the issues of oil and gas leas­ing, land use and roy­al­ty dis­putes.

In law school at the Amer­i­can Uni­ver­si­ty, Wash­ing­ton Col­lege of Law, in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., Alex took tar­get­ed clin­ics in both crim­i­nal law and real estate. Sur­round­ed by the buzz of the Belt­way, he interned in a Con­gres­sion­al office, and worked with the Small Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion.

In 2001, Alex moved to Boul­der, where he began rep­re­sent­ing land own­ers in com­plex cas­es involv­ing min­er­al rights and sur­face use. He joined Tiemeier & Stich in 2015 and has con­tin­ued to expand his prac­tice and real estate exper­tise. In addi­tion to rep­re­sent­ing clients, Alex has pro­vid­ed expert tes­ti­mo­ny in oil and gas cas­es and attor­ney fee dis­putes. He has also argued cas­es before the appel­late courts of Wash­ing­ton, D.C. and Col­orado.

This is a fair­ly spe­cial­ty niche, and one that is spe­cial to Col­orado,” he says. In fact, most of his clients come from refer­rals since the oil and gas com­mu­ni­ty is small, and Alex is entrenched in it. “I’ve always thought that there are two cat­e­gories of lawyers: those who go about the busi­ness of lawyer­ing and those who also want to help peo­ple. One is not nec­es­sar­i­ly bet­ter than the oth­er, but I am much more con­cerned with help­ing. I think that shows up in the way I han­dle my clients and our con­ver­sa­tions.”

Alex grew up in New Jer­sey and Con­necti­cut, where he played com­pet­i­tive soc­cer. These days he is pas­sion­ate about writ­ing fic­tion and poet­ry with the goal of get­ting pub­lished. Alex also plays golf, ten­nis, and ping pong in his free time.
