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.

We proudly announced our new firm name -- Ferrucci Russo Dorsey -- in July of 2020 to reflect the achievements and contributions of John Dorsey. A partner since 2016, and member of the firm since 2010, John has established an active receivership practice, often working collaboratively with cities, towns and land owners to develop specialized Court-supervised proceedings focused on resurrecting distressed real estate development projects. 

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.
