Ari Casper is a seasoned litigator and nationally recognized trial attorney whose understanding of case development and trial strategy has garnered enormous success both in and out of the courtroom. By way of examples, Mr. Casper obtained a $14,000,000 verdict against Hyundai, the largest verdict ever in a side air bag case and a $500,000,000 settlement against Ranbaxy Laboratories, the largest ever involving a generic drug manufacturer. Earlier in his career, Mr. Casper was a federal prosecutor where he successfully tried cases involving hundreds of millions of dollars in white collar crimes and public corruption.
Mr. Casper teaches trial practice as an adjunct professor at the Georgetown University Law Center, serves as a guest lecturer at other law schools, and presents to lawyers nationally on a variety of topics. He has served as a trial consultant for Fortune 500 companies in multi-district litigation and is regularly consulted on all matters of trial preparation in complex civil litigation.
After graduating number one in his class from the University of Baltimore School of Law where he wrote for the Law Review, Mr. Casper served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Alan M. Wilner of Maryland’s highest appellate court. He then joined the litigation group of Hogan & Hartson LLP (now Hogan Lovells) where he represented, among other clients, pharmaceutical companies in criminal and civil investigations, professional sports organizations, including the National Football League Baltimore Ravens, and corporate clients in complex civil litigation matters.
He is admitted to practice in Maryland state and federal courts, the District of Columbia, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, and is routinely admitted pro hac vice in jurisdictions across the country.
