What You Need to Know About Franchising


There are more business opportunities in Georgia than there are peaches – and that is saying something! With lodging being the most popular franchising industry, Georgia is home to over 1 million small businesses. The ‘Peach State’ is truly a sweet place to be an entrepreneur!

As a potential franchisor, you may be excited to know that Georgia is a non-registration state.

The Fact File


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.
