Franchise Lawyers Serving Arkansas

What You Need to Know About Franchising


Arkansas is the only state in the country that produces diamonds, just the tip of the iceberg for its many industries, exports, and business opportunities.

As a non-registration state, Arkansas has no franchise registration requirements, though franchises are still beholden to federal franchising laws and regulations.

Did You Know?

Arkansas is home to 600,000 acres of lakes – anchoring its $7.6 billion travel and tourism industry.


Arkansas has earned a Top 10 Ranking for the cost of doing business in the U.S.


Green Space Galore: Arkansas has six national park sites, two-and-a half million acres of national forests, seven national scenic byways, three state scenic byways, and 50 state parks.



Flat Fee Program for Franchisors

Spadea Lignana’s CORE program for franchisors is a cost-effective and practical solution for the ongoing legal needs of franchisors, including but not limited to, FDD updates, state registrations and franchise agreement executions. Through a proprietary cloud-based system we can effectively and efficiently manage FDD Disclosures and Franchise Agreement executions for fair flat fees billed monthly. We believe that hourly billing, although necessary in certain circumstances like complex M&A deals and litigation, can weigh on the relationship between client and attorney.  By coming up with a fair flat monthly fee, the uncomfortable negotiating of whether or not a 6 minute increment in your bill for replying to an email was legitimate goes away.
