Best Best & Krieger

The hallmark of Best Best & Krieger’s success is rooted in the relationships we forge with our clients. Grounded in integrity, respect and a shared commitment to excellence, these relationships create a sense of unity, and assure that we are fulfilling our role as trusted advisor and advocate.

BB&K is a limited liability partnership that has been in business for more than 125 years. We are a full-service law firm with about 200 attorneys in 10 offices throughout California and Washington, D.C. We deliver effective, timely and service-oriented solutions to complex legal issues facing public agencies, businesses and individuals across the U.S. and internationally. 

Our large public agency practice means that we work in the public interest and on many of the most challenging issues our society faces today. A nationally recognized leader in Municipal and Environmental law, we efficiently, intelligently and meaningfully assist our public agency clients with complex, multi-disciplinary issues and provide creative solutions. This includes ARC: Advanced Records Center — a full-service, scalable and responsive resource utilizing experienced legal personnel and leading-edge technology to supplement in-house resources for records-related matters. We successfully maneuver our public agency clients through legal complexities and governmental mandates.  

At the same time, we are able to offer businesses of all sizes, structures and industries a range of services that rival the mega firms. We have helped businesses achieve their goals for more than a century with proactive, strategic and cost-effective counsel and representation that enables clients to focus on their businesses and plan for their future. We also bring a unique perspective and insight on the public agencies that businesses must routinely interact with.  

Our experienced advocates in California and at the national level help our clients navigate the ever-changing regulatory, policy and legislative challenges they face. We give our clients a voice where it matters to help influence policy and secure the much-needed and scarce funding that allows progress to happen. 

We offer the depth and breadth of experience to seamlessly integrate our legal and advocacy services with our clients’ day-to-day operations. We handle a broad range of issues and provide the access and responsiveness our clients need — and deserve. Communication, collaboration and creativity strengthen our work product, and we utilize technological innovations to nurture our relationships. We believe our diversity (which has earned top marks from national industry publications) leads to more effective problem-solving for our clients. Our integrated approach ensures the highest quality and most timely representation available.  

BB&K is governed by a five-member Executive Committee, chaired by Managing Partner Eric Garner, and elected by the partners. Additional firm leadership includes practice group leaders, office managing partners and a professional management team.
