As a director of public policy for Google, Pablo Chavez advises on, helps develop, and advocates in favor of a range of public policy issues including privacy, content regulation, intellectual property, and online free expression. 

Prior to joining Google, Pablo worked in the U.S. Senate for four years.  Most recently, he served as Chief Counsel to the Office of Senator John McCain.  In that capacity, Pablo managed a broad portfolio of issues and responsibilities including several internet-focused matters such as the regulation of spyware, online content regulation, internet censorship, internet taxation, and privacy.

Pablo also served as a Senior Counsel to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.  In his capacity as counsel to the Committee, Pablo was responsible for managing two of the Committee's subcommittees and managed various issues relating to the Committee’s jurisdiction including internet taxation, corporate governance reform, several consumer protection issues, and oversight of ICANN.  

Before joining the senior staff of the Senate Commerce Committee, Pablo was an attorney at the law firm of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, where he represented both public and private technology companies through all stages of their development.  At WSGR, Pablo served as principal outside legal counsel to several privately held companies.  Pablo practiced law at WSGR from 1997 through 1999, and from 2001 through 2003. From January 2000 through July 2001, Pablo was Director of Strategic Development and Senior Corporate Counsel for RealNames Corporation, a privately held internet addressing and advertising company.

Pablo received his law degree from Stanford Law School.  He received his bachelor's degree from Princeton University where he majored in Public and International Affairs at Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School and minored in Latin American Studies.
