Rick Lauro, CFO, Boston’s Pizza
Drumm Law has been a tremendous asset for our company since we started using them in the summer of 2020. When the pandemic hit, we needed to change our legal services to a more non-traditional model. Given our size even before the pandemic, we could not afford a full-time attorney or even paralegal on staff. I love the approach that Mike takes for his clients, and the attorneys he hires are top notch. We have reduced our outside non-litigation legal costs by 60%. Being able to rely on Drumm Law for the FDD, contracts, labor, working with state regulators, etc. has been a great match for us. He and his attorneys are readily available to assist me whenever I call for help. And Mike’s no-nonsense approach is refreshing. They give us sounds solutions to our issues versus just telling us what we can and can’t do.

Jim Mizes, President and CEO, Blaze Pizza
Drumm Law is a difference maker.  Michael and his associates provide timely and sound business counsel and is a valued business partner.  Their use of technology and client focus is a refreshing approach creating VALUE for their clients.

The Häagen-Dazs Company Inc.
Michael Levitz has supported our franchising business for more than 20 years. He is more than our legal advisor; he is part of our team, and understands commercial realities and business objectives. Instead of telling us we cannot do something, he works with us to find a way forward. In contentious situations, I have frequently said that I was glad that Michael was on our side.

Matt Hess, River North Brewery
I have been working with Drumm Law for several years now. They have provided legal guidance to my company on many occasions, including filing trademarks and reviewing commercial leases. I don’t think my business would be where it is today without the help of Mike Drumm and his team. They are great to work with, and more importantly, great at what they do.

Marcus King, House of Colour
Drumm Law is a great fit for our team as we launched House of Colour in the the USA, not just lawyers with legal brains but also with commercial and pragmatic ones as well, a rare breed. Creating FDDs was all new to us in the UK and the Drumm Law team guided us through that very steep learning curve, adding value at each step.

Qin Liu, Ku Cha Tea
We know preparing franchising is a complex and expensive process; but we didn’t know how much it really takes, until we actually got it started. Luckily, Mike and his team from Drumm Law LLC has made it so very smooth from the beginning to the end. Their insight and expertise in the franchise industry made it looks “easy”. We highly recommend them!

Rita Goldberg (1981-2017), British Swim School
My company has been using Drumm Law firm for many years now and we have enjoyed an excellent working relationship. I have recently sold my company, and Elissa Deitch became the lawyer handling the sale. I have never met a lawyer who was as caring, thorough and a pleasure to work with in my many years of business. She was amazing and a credit to the whole of the the Drumm law team. It was greatly appreciated.

Mike Johnston, Savory Spice, LLC

Drumm Law has been extremely helpful during the process of franchising our company. They are very knowledgeable, experienced and affordable. We have always viewed the process becoming a franchisor intimidating and challenging, but Drumm Law has really changed our thinking and made it smooth and relatively simple.

Chris Hill, Odyssey Beerwerks
As a founder, and owner, of a small business in a crowded – all fighting to name their products – space, we needed guidance on how to protect our brand and avoid disputes and litigation. Mike has been invaluable in helping us navigate the potential pitfalls that arise with naming and trademark disputes. Additionally, Mike and his team have been a great legal sounding board for the many issues that arise for a small business owner (distribution agreements, contract negotiation, staffing issues, strategic direction, and more). Prompt, professional, and relatable counsel — just what you want in a lawyer.

Dave Claflin, Fastest Labs
As the Founder of Fastest Labs, I was looking for a law firm that could simplify our FDD, help me build an effective Item 19, tell our story and help me with day-to-day advice as things arise. Mike and David are the perfect fit for our franchise needs and have been a breath of fresh air with their humorous, corporate culture mixed with their rock solid expertise on everything from intellectual property, to state examiners, to the Do’s and Don’ts in this exciting franchise industry that we get to be a part of.  There is only one franchise law firm for me, and it is Drumm Law.

Robert Flanagan, Wag N Wash
I have worked with Drumm Law for close to a decade with multiple franchise concepts.  What separates Drumm Law from the pack is their personal approach and commitment to not only providing exemplary service, but also building relationships.  With other firms, I felt like we were just a number on their client list.  With Drumm Law I am not treated like a client, but as a partner.

Lucas Wagner, Franchise Times Corporation
Mike Drumm is the type of person you want to talk to when you’re looking for advice or an honest opinion.  His experience, personal network and passion for knowledge puts him in a position to be a great asset for anyone looking to build their business or take an existing one to the next level.

Mike Drumm, a great attorney in his own right, has assembled a great team of attorneys, paralegals and assistants that have been great to work with – not only on trademark issues, but also contract law, and our other business concerns. On top of that, he’s a fun guy to hang out with when the work is done and it’s time to grab a beer.

Mike has been a generous teacher and mentor, which has ultimately enabled me to minimize our legal costs, while providing legal security for our franchise.

We’ve worked with Mike Drumm with over 20 of our brands in the last several years. Mike and his team have a unique understanding about how to correctly position the brand to be attractive to potential buyers, while having an impressive amount of foresight to protect the long-term interests of all our brands from a legal standpoint. Personally, I appreciate the fact that he’s the type of guy you can grab a beer with and have authentic dialogue; you’ll never get B.S. with Mike.

Jackie Bondanza, Hounds Town USA
As an emerging franchise with limited capital, we at Hounds Town USA had a variety of legal needs, but a small budget in which to address these needs. Mike Drumm and his team worked hard to ensure they met all of our legal goals within our budget, including completely redoing our FDD and franchise agreement, and even went out of their way to provide advice and guidance on topics unrelated to what they were handling for us at the moment. They have always answered every question I have, they’re easily reachable, and quick to respond when time is of the essence. When we hired the Drumm team, I was able to breathe a sigh of relief knowing we have a strong legal team on our side as we grow our franchise.

Curtis Kloc, Inspections Over Coffee
The team over at Drumm Law is great! And not just with trademarks, We are a franchising company that is still relatively new – they have given us amazing advice on our FDD, and FA, along with helping us create a few settlements with some bad apples (our first few franchisees) where everyone came out with fair decisions. We highly recommend the Drumm law team, and want especially give kudos to David Gusewelle. His expertise has been invaluable.
