Andrew Kasper currently serves as Senior Clerk to Judge James A. Wynn, Jr., on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. In that capacity, he has served as Judge Wynn’s lead clerk on landmark cases challenging North Carolina’s legislative and congressional districting plans under partisan and racial gerrymandering theories. He also has played an integral role in the drafting of opinions, concurrences, and dissents addressing a wide variety of legal issues, including antitrust, constitutional, criminal, commercial, employment, environmental, and immigration law, as well as federal criminal and civil procedure.
Before returning to Judge Wynn’s chambers, Kasper spent three years as an associate at a leading regional law firm. His diverse litigation practice principally focused on antitrust, constitutional, and commercial disputes. He was the principal author of successful trial and appellate briefing in a groundbreaking separation-of-powers dispute between the Governor of North Carolina and the General Assembly. He also defended several large industrial firms in multi-district price-fixing and illegal merger litigation.
Kasper graduated with High Honors from the University of North Carolina School of Law. While in law school, he served as Editor-in-Chief of the North Carolina Law Review. Prior to attending law school, he obtained a master’s degree in economics at the University of Texas at Austin and worked as a reporter in Washington, D.C., covering the pharmaceutical industry.
