The firm’s most famous partner was, of course, Edward W. “Ned” Pattison. Ned joined the firm as an associate in the mid-1950s, about the same time Lambert L. Ginsberg did. Ned, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives and Rensselaer County Treasurer, devoted much of his time and energy throughout his career to numerous community and civic organizations. Ned received the prestigious Root/Simpson Award in 1990 in recognition of his exemplary voluntary community service.
Ned was instrumental in creating the Rensselaer County Chamber of Commerce’s annual Edward H. Pattison Citizenship Award, honoring those in our community who through their lives promote economic, cultural or humanitarian advancement. The “Ebbie” award continues to be supported by the firm.
