SAN DIEGO – Best Best & Krieger LLP’s San Diego office advanced several spots on the San Diego Business Journal’s annual Top Law Firms list. BB&K ranked No. 23 on the publication’s annual list of the largest firms — moving up three places from last year and five from the previous year.
There are 30 attorneys in the San Diego office, practicing in a variety of areas, including public infrastructure, water and environmental, labor and employment, municipal and business law, finance and complex litigation. The office opened in 1993 and has grown from seven attorneys.
In the past year, the Business practice in San Diego has expanded. Partner George Reyes relocated from BB&K’s Riverside office and Partner Dan Kehr joined the firm. In addition, many of the San Diego-based attorneys have garnered recognition for their work. This includes:

  • Patrick Monroe being named to the San Diego Business Journal’s annual Best of the Bar list and a recognition from San Diego Metro magazine for his business transactional work and general counsel services.
  • Lindsay Puckett, a partner in the Environmental Law & Natural Resources practice group, being selected as a San Diego Daily Transcript 40 Under 40 professional.
  • Arlene Prater also being recognized by the San Diego Daily Transcript as one of the most influential women in business in San Diego County.
  • Seven San Diego attorneys were included in this year’s San Diego Super Lawyers and San Diego Super Lawyers Rising Stars lists. 

“The BB&K San Diego team is extraordinarily talented, committed to our clients and the community. We are honored to be recognized as one of the largest firms in the area although quality has always been a more important measure to the firm than size,” said San Diego office Managing Partner James Gilpin.
