SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Best Best & Krieger LLP congratulates Partner George Reyes on being named a 2017 Advisor of the Year. In addition, Patrick Monroe, who is of counsel at the firm, was a finalist for the award, which acknowledges local middle market mergers and acquisitions professionals who have significantly contributed to the successful sale, expansion or recapitalization of their clients’ companies.
George was recognized with an award for Buy-Side Legal Representation for a deal worth more than $25 million, while Patrick was a finalist for Sell-Side Representation. The recognitions stem from their representation of Cannon Safe in a partnership and acquisition deal. Cannon, the leading manufacturer of large-scale residential safes and an innovator in home defense systems, partnered with a private equity firm to acquire a manufacturer. The deal significantly expanded Cannon’s services and market share in the field.
The awards were presented Thursday. Lori Thiel, executive director for the Advisor of the Year program, said in a release that all the finalists “are instrumental in the success of the M&A community in San Diego….”
Advisor of the Year is a nonprofit unincorporated community association that hosts an annual awards event to recognize and celebrate local advisors who provide extraordinary service and value to owners of middle market companies through their work. BB&K is pleased to be a co-sponsor of the 2017 awards event.
