Farmington Hills’ Young and Associates, a firm specializing in complex business litigation, has announced its Jaye Quadrozzi was appointed representative of Oakland County to the Great Lakes Water Authority Board of Directors. Quadrozzi will serve on a six-person board.
Previously, Quadrozzi represented Oakland County and the Oakland County Water Resource Commissioner during a long-standing federal lawsuit under the Clean Water case involving the Detroit Water and Sewer Department. In addition, she represented Oakland County in the Detroit bankruptcy case, which resulted in the creation of the Great Lakes Water Authority in 2014.
Among her other responsibilities, Quadrozzi serves as a global ambassador for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation and as an appointed member of the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority Board. At Huron-Clinton, she and other members oversee 13 parks in Wayne, Macomb, Oakland, Livingston, and Washtenaw counties.
“Jaye will be a tremendous asset to the board of directors and the residents of the state of Michigan,” says Rodger D. Young, president and founder of Young and Associates. “Her experience with the Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority Board, legal experience, and expertise, and her deep understanding of and passion for the issues, challenges, and opportunities, will serve the mission well.”
Quadrozzi has worked for Young and Associates since 2007. She is also a member of Michigan, Illinois, and California state bars, and has been admitted to federal courts including Eastern District of Michigan, the Norther District of Illinois, the Northern and Southern Districts of California, and the Southern District of New York.
“I am honored and privileged to serve the residents of Oakland County in this very important role,” says Quadrozzi. “Our residents deserve the highest quality water and services, and it is our obligation and responsibility to ensure the efficient delivery of the nation’s best water and wastewater services.”
Quadrozzi received her undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and attended the University of Michigan Law School.
The authority provides nearly 40 percent of Michigan’s population – 4 million people – with quality water as well as wastewater services to nearly 30 percent of the state.
Young and Associates has offices in Farmington Hills and New York City.
