About Spadea Lignana

Spadea Lignana is a national boutique franchise law firm. As a full-service firm, we draft FDDs, file trademarks, litigate disputes, and more. Some of our partners have held executive positions with national franchise brands and some were franchisees themselves prior to becoming attorneys.  That real world business experience provides a unique and unmatched perspective for our franchisor and franchisee clients.
