From Johnstown to Saratoga Springs
One of the country's oldest law firms has closed up shop in Johnstown and relocated to a bigger office in Saratoga Springs.
Hodgson Russ LLP closed down its Johnstown office at 55 E. Main St. and relocated staff to Suite 300 at 60 Railroad Place in Saratoga Springs. The new office opened Monday, with several attorneys from the firm's Albany office relocating there as well.
“Hodgson Russ has been proud to serve the Capital District region with dedicated law offices since 1990, and we are delighted by the prospect of serving many of these clients through this new and larger office location," said Mario Papa, managing partner of the Saratoga office, in a news release posted to its website last week. "We believe this will allow us to provide our valued clients with an even greater level of service, while also allowing for a deeper level of commitment to the community.”
In addition to Papa, Michelle Merola and Eleanor Zimmerman will be resident attorneys in the new Saratoga office, and Noreen DeWire Grimmick and Christopher Martell will divide their time between the Saratoga and Albany offices. These attorneys will be joined by visiting attorneys from other Hodgson Russ offices, as needed.
"With our new location, all of us at Hodgson Russ are excited to become an even stronger part of the Capital District region," said Hodgson Russ President John Amershadian in the release. "We look forward to continuing to advance through this office the firm's long-standing and unwavering commitment to legal excellence and to the communities where we and our clients live and work."
Hodgson Russ first began operating in 1817, making it one of the nation's oldest law firms. Its attorneys practice in nearly every area of the law and serve clients ranging from individuals to public and privately held businesses, government entities and nonprofits.
In addition to Saratoga, Hodgson Russ has offices in Albany, Buffalo, New York City, Toronto and Palm Beach, Fla.
