     Andrew B. F. Carnabuci is an associate attorney at Rose Kallor.  His practice focuses on representing public and private employers by defending lawsuits alleging wrongful termination and workplace discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, failure to accommodate, and FMLA violations.  He excels at crafting dispositive motions that can make quick work of the toughest cases and he has obtained dozens of dismissals through incisive and creative motion practice in both state and federal court, and before administrative agencies.  His practice also involves significant commercial and business tort litigation, including second-chairing a successful commercial contract trial against a Fortune 500 company.  He was selected as a Super Lawyers “Rising Star” for 2021 and 2022 in the area of employment litigation defense.

     Mr. Carnabuci holds a B.A. in History & Classics from Middlebury College, and a J.D. magna cum laude from Quinnipiac University School of Law, where he received a three-year Dean's Fellowship. In law school, he served as the Supervising Editor of the Quinnipiac Probate Law Journal, and his journal article, Avoiding the Fate of Argos, 31 Quinnipiac Prob. L. J. 281(2018), was recognized with awards from both the law school and the Judge John R. Brown Excellence in American Legal Writing Competition, and is cited in both LexisNexis Practice Guide: Connecticut Estate Planning, § 4-26 (2020) and 3 Thompson on Real Property, § 27.04 (2022) on the topic of "pet trusts" under the English common law. While in law school, he also received Awards for Distinguished Academic Achievement (highest “A" given that year) in Civil Procedure II, International Law, and Jurisprudence; as well as the Award for Outstanding Legal Scholarship, the Award for Excellence in Clinical Work and the Award for Service to the Law School. He was a summer clerk for the Hon. Michael Dolinger in S.D.N.Y.

     Mr. Carnabuci is fluent in Old English, and has engaged in extensive literary scholarship in the field of medieval Old English and Anglo-Saxon literature.  He has published three books of Old English translations: Þær His Eðel Wæs (2018), Beowulf: A Verse Translation from the Anglo-Saxon (2019), and King Alfred's Metres of Boethius (2022).  He has been invited as a guest speaker on Anglo-Saxon poetry at several prestigious independent secondary schools in Connecticut, New York, and Washington D.C.  In what remains of his free time, he enjoys playing mechanical nurse-wife to his senescent Land Rover and listening to the music of senescent 1970s rock bands.  He is a dual-citizen of both the United States and the Republic of Ireland.

    Mr. Carnabuci is currently admitted to practice in Connecticut, United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
