SAN DIEGO —  Best Best & Krieger LLP congratulates Partner George Reyes for being named one of the San Diego Daily Transcript’s 50 Influential Leaders. The annual list highlights the top professionals in San Diego County’s business community. The professional are recognized for their cutting-edge work that makes an impact for their professions, clients, industry or the region.
In an article that appeared in the Sept. 5 special section of the publication, George’s professional influence and credibility are attributed to his four decades of experience as a business transactional attorney — all at BB&K. A recognized advisor to a variety of Southern California businesses, George focuses on mid-market clients, such as AMA Plastics Inc. in its sale to a private-equity group and Cannon Safe in a partnership deal.
"Cannon Safe was a perfect example of what I do," George told the Daily Transcript of the 2017 partnership acquisition deal worth more than $140 million. "It was a complicated transaction with a lot of moving parts and a lot of things that had to come together all at once. It took several months to get across the finish line... but it worked, and I like that challenge and the excitement of doing that type of work."
When asked about the future of business transactional law, George was optimistic. "Right now, it's an exciting time. The economy seems to be hitting on all cylinders, business owners are excited to be doing things, and there's a lot of activity," he said. "So, I'm very bullish on the prospect for the legal practice going forward and particularly in the area that I work in, which is M&A transactions."
A University of California, Davis School of Law and Harvard graduate, George is a Riverside native who stays connected to his community through involvement in organizations like the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation.
