In 2007, John Mancini successfully secured a $2 million dollar settlement for Cullion Concrete from the City of Cranston for obstructing the issuance of a building permit for the company’s proposed 7,500-square-foot batching facility.

Zealously defending the validity of the company’s building permit, John Mancini repeatedly appealed to, and appeared in front of, municipal leaders, activist citizens, and the Rhode Island Superior and Supreme Court facilitating a fair and fast resolution to the conflict.

Mancini Carter continues to assist Cullion Concrete in all of its contract negotiations and business law issues, recently securing for the Company a third concrete batching facility in Cranston, Rhode Island.
