Franchise Lawyers Serving Montana

What You Need to Know About Franchising


One of the most beautiful states in the country, Montana is home to pristine lakes, groomed hiking trails, quiet communities, and more antelope than people. It is also one of the friendliest states for small businesses, with more than 106,000 statewide.

Montana is a non-registration state. This means there are no state laws that require a franchise to register, file, or give notice to the state before selling franchise locations. It is important to remember that business owners still must comply with federal franchise laws.

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.
