About Spadea Lignana

Spadea Lignana is a boutique franchise law firm helping franchisors and franchisees nationwide. Some of our partners have held executive positions with national franchise brands, while others were even franchisees themselves prior to becoming attorneys. That real-world business experience provides a unique perspective to our franchisor and franchisee clients.

FDD Disclosure System

Check out our custom designed cloud-based software to streamline the franchise sales and compliance system for franchisors. The system enables franchisors to send a link through email that takes candidates to a custom map with a simple red/green interface allowing the candidates to download the correct FDD approved in specific states.
