Benchmark Litigation has recognized Samuel BrownJoseph BuoniKaylan Dunn, Courtney Glaser, Leslie KostyshakKerry McGrath and Carter Simpson as leading litigation attorneys age 40 or under in its annual 40 & Under Hot List.

The publication honors the most notable up-and-coming litigation attorneys in the United States. Those named to this exclusive list have proven their eligibility as individuals at the partner level who are of the age of 40 or younger. They have all also had a hand in some of the firm’s most noteworthy recent cases and have earned praise from clients and peers regarding the quality of their work.

Attorneys named to the 2021 publication were chosen through several phases of research: namely, the review of their recent case work, peer review in which the publication considers how attorneys at peer legal institutions might rank them, and a consideration of client feedback on their performances. These attorneys, though young, have established themselves in their respective fields and are set to enjoy bright futures.

In a rapidly changing legal market in which firms seek to construct feasible succession plans for the baby boomer generation of attorneys, the recognition of the accomplishments of the younger generations is pertinent.

In addition to this honor, Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP also enjoys a number of firmwide rankings and further individual attorney recognition by Benchmark Litigation. Read more about the Benchmark 40 & Under Hot List 2021.
