HSE has deep roots in the Rochester community and has contributed significantly to its economic and cultural development for more than 100 years. In the 1890s, our founders assisted some of the city’s leading entrepreneurs on their paths to success, and we are honored to continue our relationships with their organizations, including Eastman Kodak Company and the Strong Museum of Play.

Rochester has an entrepreneurial, innovative and technologically driven business environment. Expansion Management magazine, in its most recent survey, once again named the Rochester Region among “America's 50 Hottest Cities” for corporate expansions and relocations. Among the city’s many other national business rankings, Rochester was 6th in export sales among 25 peer cities (International Trade Administration), and ranked 5th for “Overall Innovation Capacity” (Metropolitan New Economy Index).

HSE represents a broad mix of the companies, medical facilities and educational institutions that are driving major research and manufacturing programs in high-tech areas such as lasers, optics, digital imaging, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and the Internet. We also provide a full range of legal services to companies involved in retail, real estate development, health services, financial services, international trade, insurance, higher education and professional sports.
