SmartBooks recently created a new emerging franchise concept for finance professionals that want to build their own outsourced bookkeeping and accounting business, and we partnered with Spadea Lignana Franchise Attorneys to help us with navigating the legal aspects. Our team consists of Harold, Stephanie, Margaret and Sandee and they have all been professional, responsive, and willing to share their knowledge and expertise to help us launch our franchise concept – not just with legal aspects, but general franchise information to help us build and scale our business. They worked with us to create an FDD and Franchise Agreement that is both franchisee friendly as well as has the appropriate level of protection for us as a franchisor. They deliver the FDD through their Docusign system to simplify the tracking and compliance pieces for us, and will even work directly with prospective franchisee’s attorneys to negotiate on our behalf. All of this for a fixed fee – which is very uncommon not just in the franchise world, but with attorneys in general. We are very happy with our Spadea team and would recommend them to any franchise brand.

I was referred to this firm by my RE agent. Upon calling, I was put into contact with Michael Mirsky. This was my first commercial lease experience and going into it, I had no idea how involved a commercial lease could be. Michael took the time to walk me though each piece of the lease and explain to me what it meant or how it could affect my business. He was quick to respond and did a great job representing my side of the transaction.

Spadea is fantastic in franchise law and their services have allowed me to move my franchise company along faster and better than I have in the past. They are responsive and thorough with their work. What they do allows me more time to do what I do best.
