Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is pleased to announce that partners Shannon S. Broome and Ann Marie Mortimer have been honored among the 2023 Top 100 Lawyers in California by the Daily Journal. This West Coast ranking spotlights just 100 lawyers from throughout California who are practicing and barred in the state and have made a difference to their clients, their firms and their profession.
Broome is the managing partner of the firm’s San Francisco office, leads the California environmental practice and co-leads the firm’s Environmental, Social and Governance practice. She is frequently sought by Fortune 50 energy and manufacturing companies for her litigation and negotiation skills and has nearly 30 years of experience challenging and defending EPA and California regulations, defending enforcement actions before federal, state, and appellate courts and agencies, and obtaining complex permits from federal and state agencies. A particular highlight this year is Broome’s current practice encompassing new technology to address climate change, including carbon capture, sequestration and e-fuels, in an effort to advance net-zero goals. This is the fifth time in recent years that Broome has been selected to the Daily Journal’s Top 100 Lawyers list.
Mortimer is founder and managing partner of the firm’s Los Angeles office, head of the firm’s Commercial Litigation practice and a member of the firm’s executive committee. A strategic problem solver and litigator focused on high-stakes cases, Mortimer focuses on complex commercial litigation including novel cybersecurity disputes and has attained precedent-setting results for global brands. Over the last year, she has won several dismissals of data breach class actions for high profile retail and financial clients and has led litigation of complex environmental claims impacting various municipalities including an eight-week trial representing Tributary Agencies Group in a dispute with the cities of San Jose and Santa Clara over implementation of contracts that govern the Regional Wastewater Facility, which treats wastewater prior to release into the San Francisco Bay. This is her third time being named to the Daily Journal’s Top 100 Lawyers list.
