“In a challenging real estate development environment, my team at KSR&P has been a great source of guidance and support, helping me maneuver the complex and draining land use legal process to ultimately achieve my goals for this project and my business overall.”

Brian Bucci

President, Bucci Development, Inc.


Since going into business in 1970, Jackson Despres, President of Smithfield Peat Co., Inc. has worked diligently to establish a solid and successful reputation as a real estate developer, road and utility contractor, and aggregate producer.  In addition, Smithfield Peat is Southern New England’s leading organics material producer and an RIDEM-licensed leaf and yard waste compost facility.


Michael Kelly’s understanding of the construction industry and the depth of his expertise in zoning, planning, permitting, engineering, RIDEM, and business and construction law have proven to be a natural fit with Smithfield Peat’s business model.  For more than 25 years, Despres and Smithfield Peat have turned to Michael for guidance and counsel and have formed a strong relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

Michael and his team at KSR&P have guided many of the company’s subdivisions and projects through the complicated and torturous regulatory approval process, enabling Despres to consistently meet his business expansion and growth goals with minimal disruption.
