Attorney Charles T. Lee of Greenwich is one of 15 lawyers from around the state who have been nominated by Gov. Dannel Malloy to fill vacancies in the state Superior Court system.
Lee is a partner with Anderson, Kill & Olick in Stamford, an insurance coverage legal firm. Previously, he was a partner with McCarter & English as well as Paul Hastings Janofsky & Walker LLP. He received his A.B. from Harvard College and his J.D. from Columbia Law School.
