Before joining our team in 2006, Bonnie Wittenberg worked for a general practice litigation firm, where she handled everything from general commercial litigation, workers’ compensation, insurance defense and real estate disputes. Bonnie joined Spadea Lignana where she has built a sizable franchise practice with a primary focus on helping prospective franchisees understand and negotiate Franchise Disclosure Documents and Franchise Agreements.
Understanding Franchise Disclosure Documents and Franchise Agreements is second-nature to Bonnie. She assists with the review and negotiation of these documents on behalf of her clients and has helped hundreds of clients over the last decade. If it’s a franchise, there is a good chance Bonnie has reviewed and negotiated the documents.
Bonnie is passionate about helping small business owners and first-time business purchasers understand the franchising model. She is known for holding her clients’ hands through the process and helping them transition into the world of franchising. Her goal is to prepare business owners for the next 10—20 years or more, ensuring that they will never be surprised and that they understand the entrepreneurship journey they are about to take.

Bonnie can often spend hours on the phone with her clients because she’s set on ensuring that the business owners she works with achieve success. Plus, she has the patience and understanding to make any client feel comfortable.
