1851 Interviews the Highest Profile Attorneys in Franchising for the 2018 Franchise Legal Player Awards

Name: Mike Drumm         

Firm: Drumm Law


About Your Firm:  Drumm Law is a different kind of law firm and different is good.  It is a law firm that is run like a business and its lawyers have personality (and even a sense of humor).  Drumm law provides excellent, business-based legal advice.  If you are looking for a suit and tie law firm, this is not the law firm for you.


What makes your firm stand out as a resource for the franchise industry?

Unlike most law firms, our lawyers are fluent in English (as opposed to legalese).  Notwithstanding the foregoing…just kidding. 

What is the No. 1 thing a franchisor/franchisee should look for when identifying the right franchise attorney?

Like most things in life, it is all about the relationship.  Find an attorney that you get along with and life will be better.

When it comes to your work, what makes you happiest?

Free food from our restaurant franchise clients.

What are your top concerns for the franchise industry in the next year?

Overregulation.  From joint employer issues to state franchise laws, overregulation can constrict the growth and development of awesome brands.

What are you most optimistic about in the franchise industry in the next year?

The Broncos' playoffs chances.
