Franchise Lawyers Serving Mississippi

What You Need to Know About Franchising


Mississippi, with more than 48,000 miles of agriculture, manufacturing, mining, and fishing, is chock full of hard workers and players! Its Gulf Coast gleams with beauty, tourists, and business opportunities, while cities like Biloxi, Gulfport, and Jackson anchor the economy.

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

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.
