Josh Lignana


From Wall Street to Walnut Street—Josh Lignana started his career as a Wall Street trader, being immersed in the securities and finance world. His early experiences with lawyers were as a client.  On one such occasion, after convincing a reluctant high-profile attorney to take on a case on behalf of his employer, Josh realized he could use his persuasion skills to pursue a new passion. He earned his law degree at Rutgers and then joined forces with his lifelong friend, Tom Spadea, to start their law firm.


Josh guides business owners through the ins and outs of owning and franchising a business. If you have a question about trademarks, franchising your business or getting and keeping your franchise compliant, Josh will get you an answer.


With over 15 years of business experience, Josh is passionate about helping clients navigate through the often confusing legal aspects of owning a business. Achieving concrete results is always his goal when working with a new client.


Josh’s business experience gives him a valuable perspective in dealing with legal issues affecting businesses. His clients often tell him he’s not like other lawyers because of his approachable nature and ability to tailor legal solutions to meet their business goals rather than tailor their business goals to meet one size fits all legal solutions. To Josh, working with a client isn’t just about quick-fixes to legal issues, but it’s also about preparing business owners for a successful future.

Josh currently resides in Medford Township, NJ with his wife and two children. On the weekends, you might see him coaching youth sports, working in the yard or searching for his golf ball.
