& Government Relations
Participation and preparation for change
Maine laws are changing all the time, so businesses need stay aware of proposed legislation and existing laws that affect their operations. The legislative process can be complicated, but it is open to participation. For decades, Eaton Peabody has guided individuals, businesses and institutions to effectively participate in the Maine Legislative process. Our services range from monitoring the progress of bills, to crafting legislation and testimony, to actively advocating for our client's interest in legislation.
State agencies also are continually issuing rules that affect businesses and institutions in Maine. We monitor state agency rules and assist our clients in participation in state agency rulemaking process, stakeholder advisory groups, rule drafting, testimony and advocacy.
State agency permitting processes are complicated and time consuming. We help our clients swiftly navigate the maze of regulations to secure permits and licenses.
Receiving a notice of violation from a state agency is stressful and distracts people from their business. We help represent our clients efficiently respond in state agency investigations and enforcement proceedings. We also represent our clients in appeals of agency decisions in all courts.
