Henry concentrates his practice in environmental, energy, and municipal law. His practice includes representing businesses and municipalities in a variety of commercial and contract-based litigation, as well as advising clients on regulatory compliance, regulatory enforcement actions, and environmental risk assessment issues. Additionally, Henry also represents municipalities in a variety of matters, including those related to takings, zoning, land use, and code enforcement.

As part of his practice, Henry advises developers of renewable energy projects across New York State on real property tax implications, including the interplay of Real Property Tax Law Section 487 exemptions and payment-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILOT) agreements. Through his efforts, developers are able to better evaluate and prepare for real estate tax liabilities before and during the life of those projects.  Henry also counsels clients on other real property exemptions and incentives, including Real Property Tax Law Sections 420-a and 485-b. 

In addition, Henry litigates tax assessment matters under Article 7 of the Real Property Tax Law and has represented taxpayers, including renewable energy developers, as well as municipalities and school districts in those proceedings.
