Partner George Reyes a San Diego Leaders in Law Finalist

San Diego Business Journal Recognizes Leading M&A Attorney

Giving a nod to his middle-market merger and acquisition successes, the San Diego Business Journal selected Best Best & Krieger LLP Partner George Reyes as a San Diego Leader in Law finalist. For more than 40 years, Reyes has played a vital role in helping Southern California’s start-ups, well-established businesses — and everything in between — with strategic growth initiatives.
Within the past year, he represented a manufacturer of metal fasteners in a $60 million sale to a Swedish manufacturing firm, a specialty lighting company in a $19 million sale to a private equity firm and a metal forming company in a $60 million ESOP buyout. He is currently representing a large medical group in a strategic merger with a national health care company.

Reyes also helps individuals and small-business owners in all aspects of trusts, estates and business-succession planning.
Since relocating to BB&K’s San Diego office from the Inland Empire in 2018, Reyes has expanded the firm’s Business practice in the region. He also quickly joined organizations that benefit the area’s economic development, such as the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation, North County Estate Planning Council and the Association for Corporate Growth. He also serves as group leader for a downtown San Diego ProVisors network.
Reyes has been recognized among The Best Lawyers in America® each year since 2006. Last year, he was included on San Diego Magazine’s Top Lawyer list. He was named among the region’s Top 50 Influential Leaders by the San Diego Daily Transcript in 2018. He holds a Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Rating — the service’s highest level of peer ranking.
