One of the Northeast’s best-known political and legislative strategists, Evan Stavisky has guided countless high-stakes electoral and government relations campaigns. Described as “politically wired” by the New York Post, he has been repeatedly named as one of the 100 most influential New Yorkers by City & State, which wrote about his “deep understanding of New York government as well as its political stakeholders.”
At The Parkside Group, he oversees the firm’s government relations and public affairs practice areas. He has successfully represented a variety of clients in legislative, procurement, and regulatory matters before state and local governments in New York. His work has led to major technology companies overcoming antiquated regulations, public health groups beating the tobacco industry, the passage of critical alternative energy legislation, and the daily fantasy sports industry in New York being saved from extinction.
After serving as Chief of Staff to a New York State Assemblyman, Evan began his career in the private sector winning scores of political campaigns across New York State. For many years, his insights into government and politics have been routinely featured in many New York and national media outlets.
