Brian Schnell Partner - Faegre Baker Daniels
With more than 25 years of experience in franchising and product distribution, Brian Schnell is the chair of the firm's franchise practice that represents franchisors with headquarters based across the United States and abroad.
Brian's experience uniquely includes serving as the COO and Chief Legal Officer during 2012 for one of the country's leading health care franchisors. In the role, he led the company's field operations team and the franchise administration and legal groups. With this unique legal and business experience, Brian counsels both emerging and mature franchisors in a variety of industries, ranging from companies with thousands of locations worldwide to companies in the initial stages of building franchise systems. His clients operate in dozens of industries where franchising plays a key role in the U.S. and global economies.
Brian combines his experience with a passion for — and keen understanding of — franchising to find practical solutions for clients. Like the rest of the Faegre Baker Daniels franchise team, he is committed to focusing on what matters most and making a difference in working with franchisors on their challenges and opportunities. His expertise is based on years of working closely with clients — getting to know them and their businesses, goals and objectives. He listens, asks questions and works diligently to find solutions and approaches that work for franchisors.
Brian is a past chair of the International Franchise Association (IFA) Supplier Forum and a member of its legal/legislative, awards and membership committees. He also serves on the board of trustees for the IFA Educational Foundation and is a frequent (and well-respected) speaker and author on franchising.
As the first male to receive the IFA Women's Franchise Committee Crystal Compass, Brian earned distinction for the 2009 honor based on his leadership in franchising. He also is one of only 18 franchise lawyers recognized worldwide by Chambers Global.
