  • Auden Lewis Grumet

    I originally met Mike over a decade ago, just a few years after I began practicing law, when we were co-counsel in a convoluted and protracted copyright case. It was a pleasure working with him, particularly as a young attorney in an otherwise very contentious case, and I have looked to him as a mentor ever since. He has provided solid guidance on a number of unusual issues over the years, and he is extremely knowledgeable about franchise law in particular. He is also very patient and has an unusually calm demeanor - but he is by no means timid. In short, I endorse and recommend him without reservation for any potential client who seeks assistance with franchise matters or any number of other commercial/business practice areas.

    I met Michael at a lawyers conference. Both of us being business lawyers, I was impressed by Michael's extensive knowledge in the field and would highly recommend clients in his locale to him for their business needs.
