SAN DIEGO – Best Best & Krieger LLP Partner Arlene Prater was selected by the San Diego Daily Transcript as one of the most influential women in business in San Diego County. Prater, a member of the firm’s Labor & Employment practice group, is being recognized for the impact she makes in her field.
 
In an article published Feb. 22, 2017 in the Daily Transcript, Prater discussed the challenges of balancing a successful career and raising a family. She said support from a group of female friends in the legal profession (which has now been together for 35 years) was helpful,  especially at a time when less women were cultivating successful law careers.
 
Prater was one of the founding attorneys of BB&K’s San Diego office almost 25 years ago, and has served as that office’s managing partner. She represents public and private employers in all aspects of employment and labor matters, providing advice, training, litigation representation and investigative services. Her practice also focuses on higher education institutions and nonprofits.
 
She is dedicated to helping others through mentoring and being active in professional organizations, including as an Advisor to the State Bar  Labor & Employment Executive Committee. Prater is also on the boards of  a number of nonprofits, including Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, Serving Seniors and the San Diego Botanic Garden.
 
“One of the things I’ve really enjoyed, especially as my kids got older, is being involved in nonprofit organizations,” Prater told the Daily Transcript. “It’s been really satisfying.”
