What Our Clients Are Saying...

We are proud of the service that we provide to our clients and we’re honored to share some of their comments about us with you.


Suzanne Cummings brings a very high level of expertise in franchise law to Supporting Strategies in every aspect of our relationship. She is our advisor, our supporter, and our franchise lawyer.  I love her energy and enthusiasm.  Within 4 months of incorporating our entity, we had a disclosure document and were registered and ready to sell by month 6.

Suzanne's eagerness to understand and engage with our company established an unprecedented level of trust. She got to know our CEO and the culture of our franchise, which allows her to perfectly balance her authority and knowledge with deference and sensitivity. We're confident Suzanne genuinely wants us to succeed.

Suzanne Cummings was recommended to us while searching for a new attorney to represent our franchise company.  Working with Suzanne, and her amazing team, has been a great experience.  They all work in a timely manner, provide concise and sound legal advice and are fair and accurate in their billing.  There is no one else we will call upon to handle all our legal needs.

I freely give Cummings Franchise Law and Suzanne Cummings my highest professional recommendation.  Having worked with high priced Boston legal firms in the past, I immediately found that when it comes to franchise law, Suzanne's knowledge is second to none.  Her understanding of the needs of both the Franchisor and Franchisee has saved us thousands of dollars in overpriced fees and costly mistakes.  Success in business has a lot to do with who is on your team; I am proud to have her on ours.

Cummings Franchise Law has been an integral partner in the growth of our franchise system from 10 locations to over 220.  They have guided us in all legal aspects of franchising for well over 15 years. Suzanne, Cheri and the entire team have always responded to our questions with the utmost priority and attention.  The development and guidance that they have provided with our Franchise Disclosure Document, has placed us in a secure position within the franchise community.  Whether you are just beginning the process of franchising your idea or have been in business for years, I would strongly recommend you reach out and work with Cummings Franchise Law.

When it comes to franchise law and legal business advice, there are loads of law firms out there who talk a good game, but Cummings Franchise Law actually helps you by providing sage, sound and well researched advice.  Plus, their communication skills with you, their client, is the best I've ever known. Their team has encouraged me and given me the confidence to move forward in my businesses. I can't possibly imagine anyone not benefitting from a relationship with them, like I have from their firm. They are truly the cream of the crop.

Ms. Cummings has been our company's franchise counsel since 2008. In this time, her advice has always been 'point on.' Prior to retaining her, our company had been involved in numerous litigations with franchisees; since employing Ms. Cummings' services, there has been no further litigation. She is diligent, precise, and has been a pleasure to work with.

I have used Suzanne Cummings and Cummings Franchise Law for almost 15 years now.  Suzanne came highly recommended from a friend and I have never regretted that introduction!  Suzanne and her team have gone out of their way to meet my deadlines even when I know they have been busy with many other jobs.  I also appreciate that they treat me very well even though I am a very small business and a very small part of their work.  I have always felt that I had their full attention and they always  take the time to explain and suggest alternatives to me.  They know my business and act as a business partner, not just an attorney for hire.  They have helped me with employment contracts, software license agreements and negotiations, and even leases.  I have no hesitation recommending Cummings Franchise Law.
