“We used Mark for a complicated business sale and could not have been happier with the first-rate service we received. Mark’s knowledge, attention to detail, timeliness, communication and general persona made the transaction as stress free as possible and we would highly recommend his services to anyone without any hesitation.”

– Dr Peter M, Dentist, Lilydale, Victoria

“Cummings Lawyers (Mark Cummings) is my first choice law firm. They comfortably handle everything from minor conveyancing jobs up to large practice buy/sell transactions with a track record of providing timely, high quality and cost effective services.”

– David Collins, Partner, Synstrat Accounting, Doncaster, Victoria

“Mark Cummings was a great asset and source of quality advice when it came time for me to buy into the practice.  The process was very smooth, and Mark’s legal services were extremely beneficial.  I have referred several colleagues to Mark in the years since, and will continue to do so.”

– Dr JY (Orthodontist, Victoria)

“I am so glad I chose Mark Cummings to handle the purchase of my practice and the real estate. Mark’s professionalism, understanding and attention to detail was crucial to my business’s set up and structures. The circumstances of the sale were not straightforward but Mark made sure the process was as smooth as possible, liaising with the seller’s people and my other advisers effectively. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark to anyone, including my friends, family and peers, and I will be seeking Mark’s legal advice again whenever needed in the future.”

– Dr Vivian Leung (Dentist, Melbourne)

“I met Mark several years ago where he gave a talk outlining the legal issues around buying/setting up a practice. Mark made it informative, clear and easy to understand. His knowledge and confidence were readily apparent and very reassuring. I looked at a few practices over the years, and Mark’s guidance was always very helpful, clear and on the money. When I did eventually purchase a practice, Mark acted for us and made a complicated process as swift and easy as possible.  He was always available to answer any questions, and replied in amazing time and hit every deadline.  He has also acted for me in several matters since, all executed with the same level of care and diligence. Mark is always a pleasure to deal with, professional, sincere and genuine. I cannot recommend him highly enough.” 

– Dr David L. (Dentist, VIC)

“Throughout a protracted, difficult and frankly quite stressful negotiation to purchase a Veterinary practice as well as a leasing agreement I found Mark from Cummings Lawyers to be an invaluable source of knowledge, practical advice and most of all patience with all parties involved. At times it looked like the deal may have fallen thru but Mark was able to keep pushing on until it was all done. I would highly recommend his services in this area of law.”

– Dr Mark A. (Veterinary Surgeon, VIC)

“We have had the pleasure of working with Mark frequently over the last 5 years, as many of our dental clients have used his services when selling or buying a practice. Mark is always professional, easy to deal with, knows the dental industry intimately and appreciates the need to complete these deals in a timely manner. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark to any of our clients and look forward to working with him again.”

– Simon Palmer, Practice Sale Search, Dental & Veterinary Practice Sales

“We couldn’t recommend Mark Cummings more highly. We received absolutely professional service with the best advice and results. We engaged Mark to assist us with our business purchase. The service we received was above and beyond our expectations. His approach is professional and meticulous. Mark was friendly and patient & communicated at our level at all times. He found the time to communicate to us and provided a good explanation of the process, clauses and legal requirements. Our business transfer was very smooth and Mark removed the stress and confusion that comes with legal matters. I would highly recommend Mark at Cummings Law to anyone who requires this service.”

– Birju Pavan & Dr Smruti Nashi (Dentist, Cheltenham, VIC)

“I am extremely happy with Mark’s handling of the sale of my dental practice. He was efficient, and straight to the point. Mark listened to my wishes and guided me through the sometimes complicated process of the sale. I highly recommend Mark Cummings.”

– Dr Russell McDonald (Dentist, Melbourne VIC)

“Mark has represented me with the purchase of two dental practices over the last 4 years and I would highly recommend him. I found him to be very knowledgeable in the area of medical practice sales/purchases and is quick with communication with counterparties and getting things to settlement.”

– Dr Jijesh Valappil (Dentist, Gold Coast, QLD)

“I engaged Mark to oversee the sale of my veterinary practice. I was actually away for 2 weeks during the last stages of the sale. When I came back from holidays, it was pretty well completed (a nice surprise). Mark dealt with all of the finer points of the deal, and kept in constant communication with both the buyer’s solicitor and myself. Mark ensured we had all bases covered before completing the deal. The buyer’s solicitor praised Mark for his efforts. I thoroughly recommend Mark for the sale of any business.”

– Dr Mark Berry (Veterinary Surgeon, Shoalhaven Heads, NSW)

“MW Partners specialises in attending to the tax and financial affairs of dentists. We have had a strong relationship with Mark Cummings for many years and can attest to his legal skills and knowledge particularly where it comes to the review or preparation of contracts for the sale of a dental practice. Both our clients and ourselves have found Mark to be very thorough and diligent in his review of sale contracts often raising issues that had not been considered by either the buyer or the seller. Mark is timely in responding and converses easily with accountants, financial institutions and other lawyers to ensure a satisfactory result is achieved. Mark is able to think outside the box to find solutions to unique problems and has the ability to explain complex legal matters in plain English. We have no hesitation in recommending Mark for any legal work required by a dentist that relates to the initial purchase or any ongoing matters in the day-to-day operations of their practice.”
