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.
