Ari S. Casper has atrial-intensive practice. As a former Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Maryland, Professor Casper prosecuted white collar criminal cases involving losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars. He also prosecuted cases involving public corruption, tax fraud, organized crime, and narcotics and firearms sales. He now regularly recovers millions of dollars for his clients in a variety of types of cases, including a recent settlement filed on behalf of an individual in a complex commercial dispute in excess of $11,000,000. Whether Professor Casper is advocating for an individual or company bringing an action in a complex commercial dispute, or brain-injured client caused by an automobile defect, medical malpractice, or catastrophic accident, his focus from the outset is on preparing the matter for trial, and maximizing the full value of each case.
Professor Casper draws upon his training as a federal prosecutor in his representation of witnesses, subjects, and targets of regulatory and criminal investigations brought by the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, State Attorneys General offices, and other government agencies. Professor Casper has successfully defended individuals and corporations in grand jury investigations across the country. Professor Casper teaches trial practice as an adjunct at the Georgetown University Law Center and has been a guest lecturer at other law schools.
