Biography

Susan joined Wiggin and Dana after serving as in-house counsel for McDonald's Corporation for nearly 16 years. Her extensive experience representing the world's largest food service retailer has become an invaluable asset in helping clients navigate the many global complexities of franchising and real estate law.

As a Partner in the firm's Franchise and Distribution Practice Group and Real Estate Department, Susan helps clients develop franchise and distribution networks and manage real estate transactions, franchise and distribution assets and systems, operating standards, and other related matters. She also helps independent and franchised business owners with business concepts, operating standards, regulatory compliance, media and customer relations issues, and real estate and leasing matters.

During her tenure at McDonald's, she was selected to participate in the Leadership at McDonald's Program (LAMP), which develops the company's highest achievers. She served as Senior Counsel and General Counsel for numerous business units, where she provided strategic advice, leadership, and guidance to all levels of the company. Her success earned her Team Awards.

Susan regularly counsels clients on franchising, commercial contracts, real estate, franchisee finance, supply chain, food safety, joint partnerships, advertising cooperatives and market-level advertising programs, creditor and lender issues, litigation management, and employment matters, as well as general corporate governance, and privacy issues.

She has deep experience ensuring compliance with new system-wide initiatives, as well as with existing standards and policies. Susan also has extensive transactional experience in franchise acquisitions, divestitures, and work-outs.

Before she joined McDonald's, Susan led a private practice specializing in commercial real estate transactions and retail leasing.

Susan earned her J.D. from New England Law, where she was Editor-in-Chief of the New England Journal  on Criminal and Civil Confinement. She earned her B.A. from Franklin and Marshall College.
