Ranged AD with early MR

Any AOE AP carry that builds early MR. Kass sucks at farming and can't zone anybody out if his burst doesn't hurt enough to make trading worthwhile.

Morgana can push him into the ground, outburst him while ignoring silence+slow thanks to her E, and outsustain his harass anyway thanks to passive spellvamp. Soraka, Mordekaiser, Annie, Maokai and Cassiopeia do similarly well because they are such strong laners with decent sustain.

LeBlanc, Talon, and Fizz have decent chances against Kassadin because they have similar assassin-mage playstyles.

Just about any ranged AD should outfarm and outharass Kassadin in lane, especially Caitlyn and Ashe with their range and lower reliance on abilities (= they care less about silence).

Who's*
I would say Caitlyn because:
She has way better range
She doesn't need spells, so silence isn't too much of an issue
Her traps can stop Kassadins from Riftwalking.

AP Sion is the perfect counter against Kass and Leblanc. Pretty much any AP that has to get close to you to do damage. The second you see Kass blink towards you, put up your shield. He has to get through your shield before he can do any damage and if he doesn't then he gets a shield pop to the face. Even if he breaks through your shield, he has hardly done any real damage. Meanwhile, you can stun him and hit him with a few autoattacks. Heimer is another great counter to him, as the turrets will focus him the second he gets in range. Only problem with Heimerdinger though is that he is not a very high tier AP champion. He can become a beast though if he gets to zone Kass and free farm.

People suggesting AD carries obviously don't know what they're talking about. Any AD carry is dead the moment Kass hits level 6. Your best bet is people who can damage Kass during his down time. You're not looking for people who can trade but people who can harass back even more.

Akali is a fantastic counter to Kassadin because when he uses Q + Teleport you can burst him down immediately.

AP Sion is another counter to Kassadin because you can shield when he Q's and force him to farm under his turrets.

Fizz is another good counter to Kass.

I don't think any AD is necessarily a counter... but Siv can destroy him even if he hits 6. Spell shield just blocks too much damage and the range on her Q + the MS increase? With spell shielding his main damage, you'll easily out trade him in damage even with riftwalk. Just shield his highest level spell.

And being able to push will screw with his farm so he won't have many mana items by the time he hits six anyway.
