George E. Pataki

Governor George Pataki’s practice focuses on energy, environmental and corporate matters. Prior to joining Chadbourne & Parke LLP, he served three terms as the 53rd governor of New York state, from 1995 through 2006. First elected in 1994, he won re-election in 1998 and 2002.

Governor Pataki brings to Chadbourne broad experience in law and public service. He was a partner in the New York law firm of Plunkett & Jaffe until 1987.
