Robinson+Cole Partner and Litigation Section Co-chair Rhonda J. Tobin has been named one of Benchmark Litigation’s Top 250 Women in Litigation for 2020. In this national list published on August 13, 2020, Ms. Tobin is the only female litigator chosen in the state of Connecticut. This is the sixth consecutive year she has received the distinction.

Ms. Tobin has represented insurance companies for almost 30 years in litigation of complex disputes involving insurance and reinsurance coverage, insurance bad faith, and extracontractual liability. In addition to serving as co-chair of Robinson+Cole’s Litigation Section, she is a member of the firm’s Managing Committee. Ms. Tobin is one of six Connecticut attorneys named as a Fellow in the American College of Coverage Counsel, the preeminent association of lawyers who represent the interests of insurers and policyholders. She was also selected by the Hartford Business Journal for inclusion in its 2020 “Women in Business” recognition.

According, to its website, “the extensive research process used in the creation of Benchmark’s Top 250 Women in Litigation 2020 involves months of investigation into individual litigators’ professional activities as well as client feedback surveys and one-on-one interviews, and has culminated in the selection of the most distinguished women in the world of litigation.” Attorneys named in the publication were chosen through several phases of research: review of their recent casework, consideration of how attorneys at peer legal institutions might rank them, and client feedback on their performances.
