Firm Profile

At Ferrucci Russo Dorsey, we represent and counsel clients in commercial litigation and receiverships and insolvencies. We are active in project development and construction matters for prominent real estate projects that have shaped our local landscape from casino gaming development to major energy facilities to waterfront development to infrastructure modernization to historic renovations.

In the healthcare arena, we have pioneered the concept of protecting acute-care community hospitals through the mastership process, and developed experience in hospital conversion, change of control, certificate of need, and other contested regulatory matters.

After years at large, regional law firms, the principals at Ferrucci Russo Dorsey founded our firm to foster more direct contact with clients. The same lawyers you work with from day-one, go to court on your behalf, and remain accessible as your primary contact. In our experience, this approach gets results.
