Hodgson Russ Press Release

Hodgson Russ LLP is pleased to announce that Emanuela (Amy) D’Ambrogio has joined the firm’s Rochester office as a partner in its Environment & Energy Practice. With over twenty years of experience, Amy will significantly expand the firm’s capabilities and depth in the areas of property tax, eminent domain, land use disputes and compliance matters. Her addition will enhance the firm’s ability to not only service existing clients, but also attract new clients in New York State and nationally.

Amy’s practice involves national property tax compliance and defense work relating to property taxation.   Amy routinely assists energy and utility clients in negotiating tax-assessment reductions involving standalone generating facilities or a portfolio of assets located in multiple states, resulting in substantial property tax savings. She also routinely counsels clients with tax exemption matters, including negotiation of payment in lieu of tax (PILOT) agreements.

In addition, she counsels not-for-profit entities providing critical services to individuals with special needs and disabilities on regulatory compliance and tax exemption matters and defends these organizations in the event of alleged legal violations, both civil and criminal.

Amy also advises clients in eminent domain proceedings from preliminary hearing stages to trials involving the acquisition of real property interests, trade fixtures, and leasehold rights.

“Amy expands our strength in state and local tax issues through her experience in the real property tax area, particularly serving the renewable energy industry,” said Managing Partner, Benjamin M. Zuffranieri, Jr.  “We are so very pleased to have Amy join Hodgson Russ. She is a terrific addition to our already strong team. “
