Faegre & Benson is recognized as a worldwide leader in franchise law in the 2011 edition of Chambers Global.
Members of the practice provide a full range of services to franchisor clients. Representing more than 200 franchisors, the team assists clients with global expansion, cross-border trademark and brand protection, and country-specific project plans. The group also covers litigious and transactional matters for increasingly active clientele in the Middle East, Australia, and South America.
One client told Chambers Global that Faegre & Benson "provides great service for its size and has the outreach of a global firm."
Brian Schnell was singled out as a key individual with the firm's global franchise practice. One client quoted by Chambers Global reported that Schnell "is always very business-minded, rational and practical. He has strong interpersonal skills and a genuine concern for the success of our business." Schnell represented Dragonfly Lifestyle, one of the first China-based franchisers expanding outside China, in a deal for a multi-unit development in the United Arab Emirates.
