Andrew K. Clark, Director

I am an equity partner at LeClairRyan, PLLC in Richmond, Virginia. The focus of my practice is on all aspects of high-stakes business litigation in both state and federal court, including commercial and contract disputes, construction and mechanic’s lien disputes, personal injury and wrongful death prosecution and defense, insurance coverage disputes, estate and trust disputes, and other general civil matters. I also represent business and individual clients in professional liability matters in the area of financial services, including representing clients in FINRA arbitration proceedings. My practice also includes matters before various state and federal appellate courts, including my serving as lead counsel in several appeals to the Supreme Court of Virginia.

I have been an active member of the FBA since 2001. My service to the FBA has included the following leadership positions:

• I served as the Richmond Chapter’s president from 2004-2005 and 2010-2011. In 2009, I helped re-establish the Richmond Chapter by putting in place a leadership structure that has resulted in the Richmond Chapter remaining an active and invigorated FBA Chapter. To that end, I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Richmond Chapter of the FBA;

• I have participated in the FBA Chapter Leadership Training Program, the Supreme Court Admissions Ceremony hosted by the FBA Younger Lawyers Division, and served as a moderator at the 2012 Chapter Leadership Training Program;

• From 2007 until October 2013, I served on the Board of Directors for the Federal Litigation Section;

• In 2012 and 2013, I served on the FBA Chapter Activity Awards Committee. In 2014, I was selected by the Hon. Gustavo A. Gelpi, Jr., past national president of the Federal Bar Association, to serve as chairman of the Chapter Activity Fund Committee for 2014;

• I was selected Mark K. Vincent, Esq., past national president of the Federal Bar Association, to serve on the Nominations and Elections Committee for 2016;

• From 2011 to 2017, I served as a circuit vice president (CVP) for the Fourth Circuit. I also previously served on the FBA’s Community Outreach Committee; and

• In 2017, I was elected to serve as a member of the FBA Board of Directors.

I am also actively involved in many civic and bar organizations within the Richmond community through my service on the Board of Directors for The Historical Society of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, the Board of Trustees for Historic Richmond, the Board of Directors of The American Documentary Film Fund, and as legal counsel to the Richmond Sports Backers.
