Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP partners Cassandra (Sandy) Collins and Lorelie S. Masters have been named to Benchmark Litigation’s 2021 Top 250 Women in Litigation. The publication honors the accomplishments and distinguished careers of female litigators and recognizes them as top players in their respective fields.

Honorees in the Top 250 Women in Litigation publication have earned their place amongst the leading female litigators by participating in some of the most impactful litigation matters in recent history as well as by earning the hard-won respect of their peers and clients.

Benchmark Litigation noted, “Sandy Collins of the Richmond, Virginia office of Hunton Andrews Kurth co-leads the energy litigation practice. Her practice additionally includes a diverse range of commercial disputes, most notably in the energy and construction industries. Her appellate experience in groundbreaking environmental and energy actions have made her a trusted advocate to a wide array of clients.”

Benchmark continued to write, “Hailing from the Washington, DC office of Hunton Andrews Kurth, renowned insurance coverage litigator Lorelie Masters continues to position herself at the heart of groundbreaking actions centered around a wide range of coverages, including COVID-19 related insurance coverage, as well as for environmental, employment, directors and officers, fiduciary, property damage, cyber, and other liabilities. Masters was part of the lead counsel team representing United Policyholders, a non-profit advocacy group in a recently filed amicus brief supporting a request for the US Supreme Court to review the Eleventh Circuit’s decision in Mama Jo’s, Inc. d/b/a Berries v. Sparta Insurance Co., a case with significant implications for property and business insurance claims arising out of COVID-19.”
