We continue to use Spadea Lignana for all of our franchising legal needs. As a San Francisco, California based company, we find it very easy to work with Andy Matson and his colleagues even though they are located in Philadelphia. Their entire team has assisted us with the growth of our business around the country. Does your firm need help with your FDD renewal process? How about updating your Item 19 disclosure materials? I would highly recommend this firm to everyone in need of wicked smart attorneys and legal counsel. Did I mention they have very reasonable pricing/fee structures to choose from?

I am a former franchise broker, multi-unit and multi-brand franchisee, and, yes, paralegal. Currently, I am the VP of Franchise Development for an emerging franchisor. I knew Tom Spadea from my broker days and was eager to introduce my new company to his firm Spadea Lignana. Their FDD compliance platform is an excellent tool to keep us up-to-date and compliant. And, our legal team, including attorney Jessica Dempsey and paralegal Margaret LaMura-Dara, works diligently and exceptionally hard to meet our needs. I have complete confidence in Spadea Lingana, Tom and the whole team. My highest recommendation!

I have used Spadea Lignana for many years now and the level of support is unrivaled and unmatched. They treat you like family and not just like a client. It is a real partnership where they truly care about your business and do everything in their power to protect you. Margaret works tirelessly for our brand even working weekends to make sure we get our agreements in on time. Sandee, Jessica, and Margaret provide the greatest support to our brand on a daily basis. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

I had a great experience working with Spadea Lignana on my FDD. Christine, Andrew and Victoria are very professional and experienced lawyers who provide great advice and insights. Would recommend them to anyone looking to start a franchise.
